These records were donated to the Washington State University libraries by the Washington State University Athletics department on April 5, 1994 (UA1994-06). Processing of this collection was completed by Katrina Burch in August and September of 2010. A large quantity of materials in this collection were moved to the WSU Publications collection or to the general book stacks during process; many other items relating to student athletes were destroyed for privacy reasons.

Washington State University's athletics programs dates to the beginning of the school in 1890-1892, when it was known as Physical Education, and has continued since. WSU's athletics teams participate in the Pac-10 athletic conference; excepting a period from 1959-1962 after the conference disbanded and reformed, Washington State University has been a member of the Pac-10 and it predecessor conferences since 1916. The Pac-10 changed to that name from the Pac-8 in 1978.


The collection is organized in two series. The first series consists of items relating directly to Washington State Athletics, and is arranged alphabetically by subject. The second series consist of papers relating to WSU athletics’ external affiliations, specifically the Pac-10 conference, the Northern Pacific Athletic Conference (NORPAC, a women's athletic conference) and the NCAA. This series is organized by date.


This collection is open and available for research use. Copyright restrictions may apply.
