Abstract
Since shortly after its 1890 founding, Washington State University participated in intercollegiate football. Filming of those competitions began in the 1920s and continues today. The collection consists of 16mm films from WSU football games; unlike earlier collections, much of this film was unlabeled and thus identifications here are frequently partially incomplete.

Scope and Contents note

The collection consists of 16mm films from WSU football games; unlike earlier collections, much of this film was unlabeled and thus identifications here are frequently partially incomplete. All but three of the films date from 1977-1978. Unlike most of the other collections of football films held in MASC, much of the film in this set is not coaching film, but rather promotional films or b-roll.

Arrangement note

The collection is broken loosely into two sets. Box one contains primarily game films, though the second, smaller, reels in that box may be promotional. Virtually all materials in box two are promotional. Materials in both boxes are ordered chronologically by year, and then alphabetically within that. Individual items have not been numbered.
