This collection consists of correspondence, minutes, game
records, clippings, photographs, and a scrapbook. The scrapbook, assembled by Robert M.
Lawson (president of the association), documents the association's first year (1947-48)
and includes clippings, photographs, charter, and narrative accounts of membership,
training, playing, finances, and each quarter's season.
The Stanford Polo Association, a student group, was organized in the spring of 1947;
prior to that, the polo team had been sponsored by ROTC. Allen Ross, Director of the
Stanford Riding School, was its first coach.
