New Additions to H-Sport Archive

H-Sport is pleased to announce that additional collections have been added to its Archive Project, an online resource which provides information about archival collections that are of interest to sport scholars. Archive Project collections have now been organized with the following categories to make searching easier: US and Canada, Latin America, Europe, Olympics, Soccer (football), Baseball, Photographs, Journalism, and Physical Education and Recreation. We hope to be adding more categories and welcome suggestions for additional categories.

The following collections have recently been added to the Archive Project:

  • Archive of the Royal Dutch Football Association (Koninklijke Nederlandse Voetbalbond, KNVB)
  • Jack Olsen Papers
  • Murphy Collection of Van Alen Papers
  • D. X. Murphy & Bro., Architects Records, 1854-1949
  • Young Men’s Christian Association (Louisville, Ky.)
  • Thomas M. Knight Letters, 1888-1904
  • Taylor-Hay Family Papers, 1783-1991
  • Kentucky Association (Lexington, Ky.) Records, 1907-1932
  • Haldeman Family Papers, 1843-1981
  • Bill Bowerman papers, 1932-1999
  • American Association for Health, Physical Education and Recreation (AAHPER), NW District records, 1930-1967

Keywords accompany each collection listed to provide more information about the collection’s content.  More complete descriptions of each collection can be accessed from the H-Sport Archive Project page.  A link to the Archive Project can also be found on the right-hand menu on the main H-Sport page.

The H-Sport Archive Project team welcomes suggestions of collections to include.
