Scope and Content

Association Archivist Ruth Johnson collected many of these papers during the 1990s from association officers and members. She brought them in batches to Rod Library Special Collections and arranged them there. Most material is arranged chronologically within categories. When possible, we have kept this part of the collection as she arranged them. 

However, several years after the original collection was donated, a large shipment of additional material was received. These were not in any particular order, and have been cataloged as an addendum to the original collection.

Acronyms are used throughout.  Some of these refer to different organizations and some to the same organizations that have undergone name changes. In addition, sometimes different acronyms are used interchangeably and simultaneously by the same group.

Here is a list of the acronyms:

AAAHPERD = Association of the American Alliance for Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance; also known as AAHPERD (American Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance), and, as of 2013, SHAPE America (Society of Health and Physical Educators). This collection includes only pre-2013 material, so the acronym SHAPE is not used here.

BOG = Board of Governors

CDAAAHPERD = Central District Association of the American Alliance of Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance; also known as CDAAHPERD (Central District of the American Association of Health, Physical Recreation, and Dance); CDAHPER (Central District of the Association of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation); and CDHPER (Central District of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation)

CAPECW = Central Association of Physical Education for College Women, aka CAPEHE (Central Association of Physical Education in Higher Education)

EAPECW = Eastern Association of Physical Education for College Women, aka EAPEHE (Eastern Association of Physical Education in Higher Education)

IAHPER = Iowa Association of Physical Education and Recreation

IAHPERD = Iowa Association of Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance

KAHPER = Kansas Association of Physical Education and Recreation

MAPECW = Midwestern Association of Physical Education for College Women, aka MAPEHE (Midwestern Association of Physical Education in Higher Education)

MWSPH = Middle West Society of Physical Education

NAPECW = National Association of Physical Education for College Women, aka NAPEHE (National Association of Physical Education in Higher Education)

SAPECW = Southern Association of Physical Education for College Women, aka SAPEHE (Southern Association of Physical Education in Higher Education)

WAPECW = Western Association of Physical Education for College Women, aka WAPEHE (Western Association of Physical Education in Higher Education)
