Abstract
Washington State University's athletics program dates to the beginning of the school in 1890-1892, when Athletics was known as Physical Education, and has continued since. The collection consists of photographs and other materials which had been held for years as research files in WSU Athletics. While individual materials may be as old as 1900 and as recent as 2013, the bulk of the material runs from about 1980-1997. The main body of the collection consists of sets of photographs related to the use, construction, and remodeling of Washington State University's facilities for the so-called "major sports": football, basketball, and baseball, plus track and field.

Biographical/Historical note

Washington State University's athletics program dates to the beginning of the school in 1890-1892, when Athletics was known as Physical Education, and has continued since. WSU's athletics teams participate in the Pac-12 athletic conference. Excepting a period from 1959-1962 when the conference disbanded and reformed, Washington State University has been a member of the Pac-12 and its predecessor conferences since 1916.

Scope and Contents note

The collection consists of photographs and other materials which had been held for years as research files in WSU Athletics. While individual materials may be as old as 1900 and as recent as 2013, the bulk of the material runs from about 1980-1997. The main body of the collection consists of sets of photographs related to the use, construction, and remodeling of Washington State University's facilities for the so-called "major sports": football, basketball, and baseball, plus track and field. There are a large number of images related to band and to cheerleading and rally squads as well. Almost no material from actual sporting contests is included.

Arrangement note

The collection is arranged in two primary series by material types: photographic materials and print materials. There are two subseries within the photographs: building/facility files, and topical files. In each series and subseries folders are organized alphabetically, excepting some "related facilities" which are filed with same-sport facilities (for example, a folder on Rogers Field, the football predecessor to Martin Stadium, is files at the end of the Martin Stadium materials). No serious attempt has been made to organize materials within each folder; for the most part they remain in the order received. Photographic formats include photographic prints, contact sheets, negatives, slides, and even CDs of images.
