HISTORICAL NOTE

The Board of Athletic Control of Stanford University was established in 1916. The nine member Board consisted of students, faculty, and alumni representatives. Their functions included care of athletic facilities, general control and supervision of the competitive and non-competitive athletic and physical training department, recommendations for staff appointments, control of all funds devoted to physical training and athletics for men, and oversight of competitive sports events. The Board was discontinued when the Department of Athletics was organized in 1945.

SCOPE AND CONTENT

The records of the Board of Athletic Control consist of minutebooks for 1916 through 1943, and bylaws, contracts, correspondence, memoranda, reports, and other miscellaneous records, 1919 through 1954. Contracts include those with University of California at Berkeley regarding football games, 1920-22, and one among Stanford, Berkeley, and University of Southern California regarding standards, 1923. Also of note is a report by Prof. W. B. Wing on the farming and sheep herding operations of the Board (on campus lands) to produce income for athletic events, 1921, much of which was overseen by Sam McDonald.
