Scope and Content
The bulk dates of this collection--from about 1960 through about 1978--center on the time when Professor Raymond Schlicher served on the University of Northern Iowa Athletic Board and also as the university representative to the National Collegiate Athletic Association. Most of the material in this collection consists of Professor Schlicher's own files. The files track the work of both on-campus and external conference and athletic associations, including matters relating to eligibility, financial aid, policy, rules, scheduling, and scholarships. Correspondents include conference commissioners, President James W. Maucker, Coach Stan Sheriff, Athletic Board members, and Professor Schlicher. The collection includes a large volume of printed material relating to the North Central Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and the National Collegiate Athletic Association in the 1960s and 1970s. The collection offers an excellent look at the ways in which the University of Northern Iowa developed its athletic program from Teachers College days to higher levels as a university.
This collection includes a small number of files in Box 12 that document quite early athetic programs on campus.
