Recognized as the most popular faculty committee on campus, the Athletic Committee was formed between 1910 and 1926 and has been meeting monthly ever since.
The earliest extant records for the committee date to 1926. The collection consists of meeting minutes and award lists. Topics routinely discussed were athletic schedules, awards and compliance with NCAA policies. The collection also contains Ohio Valley Conference meeting minutes.
The committee was comprised of L.T. Smith, M.A. Leiper, W.J. Craig and Florence Schneider well into the 1960’s. New members were only allowed onto the committee as these members retired. In 1962 a student member was added to the committee. The committee was admonished by administration in 1971 to set term limits to address the complaints of faculty members wishing to be appointed to the committee.
The finding aid for the series is available online at: http://digitalcommons.wku.edu/dlsc_ua_fin_aid/128/ These and other university records are available for researchers to use in the Harrison-Baird Reading Room of the Kentucky Building, Monday-Saturday, 9 to 4.
