WKU athletic records and photographs are a hot item in University Archives. We answer many questions related to coaching staff, student athletes and teams throughout the year. In order to facilitate research several series of records have been processed and detailed finding aids made available online. These include two sets of photographs:
- Athletic Media Relations Photograph Collection (http://digitalcommons.wku.edu/dlsc_ua_fin_aid/75/)
- Athletics section of the WKU Archives Photograph Collection (http://digitalcommons.wku.edu/dlsc_ua_fin_aid/29/ ).
Digitized images are available through KenCat (http://wku.pastperfect-online.com/35749cgi/mweb.exe?request=ks).
Several athletic department office records have been processed.
- Athletic Director’s Records (http://digitalcommons.wku.edu/dlsc_ua_fin_aid/78)
- Baseball Office 1947-1959 (http://digitalcommons.wku.edu/dlsc_ua_fin_aid/66/)
- Athletic Media Relations
These last records are especially useful to anyone interested in the Hilltoppers as they consist of Media Guides for every major sport(http://digitalcommons.wku.edu/dlsc_ua_fin_aid/55/), Student Biographical File 1979-2004 (http://digitalcommons.wku.edu/dlsc_ua_fin_aid/54/) and Clipping File 1962-present (http://digitalcommons.wku.edu/dlsc_ua_fin_aid/53/).
We are currently processing the Basketball Office records which consist of correspondence regarding schedules, tournaments and athletes and hope to have a finding aid posted in the near future.
The University Archives also houses an extensive film, video and audio collection, the bulk of which is made up of athletic film. The master list is available online at: http://digitalcommons.wku.edu/dlsc_ua_fin_aid/198/
If you have Hilltopper documents, photographs or memorabilia that don’t appear in the finding aids, please contact the University Archives at 270-745-4793 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
