Record Series 328 contains the administrative and departmental files of the Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology.
These include correspondence of the chair and faculty, departmental reports and memoranda, meeting minutes, enrollment and
curricular materials, and other administrative files documenting the activities and development of the department from its
early days as the Department of Physical Education, through its iterations as the Department of Kinesiology and the Department
of Physiological Science.
The Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology traces its origins to the Department of Physical Education, which was
established in 1915 as part of the State Normal School at Los Angeles. In 1919 the department became part of the Teachers
College of the Southern Branch of the University of California, with separate departments for men and women. During the 1920s,
the department's efforts were devoted to the training of Physical Education teachers and the administration of the Physical
Education classes that were required of all undergraduates.
