This collection primarily documents the trophies and awards received by the Athletics Department dating back to the 1950s, when the university was still a High School/Junior College. In an effort to preserve the memories of the athletic awards, student assistants documented the collection by photographing, inventorying, organizing and publishing over 250 items. Included items are: trophies, plaques, banners, and other miscellaneous items. Of interest may be photographs of the Donald McDonald (HS '31 JC '33) exhibit removed from the fieldhouse at the same time as the trophy collection.
Many thanks to the student assistants and their dedication to this project: Hannah Beukema (Dennings '16), Halle Hess, Tanner Mitchell ('16) and Vicy Henry ('17).
