1974-1976 Minutes of Department Meetings

1961-1966 Reports on Enrollment of Physical Education Majors in 37:003 and 39:003 (Activity): During this period of time majors enrolled only in 39:006 Freshman Major Activities, 39:007 Sophomores 39:108 Junior, or 39:109 Senior. They attended classes for general education enrollees under numbers 37:003 and 39:003. Therefore, official records of numbers enrolled in the 003 classes are considerably less than the actual class size. These may be the only records which give the correct sizes.

1940 Posture Examination Procedures: For many years prior to World War II every woman student was given a posture examination and foot examination when entering the college. The practice was discontinued during World War II; an effort to get the program started again after 1945 was not successful. Reference to this requirement is probably included in College Bulletins during the 1920's-30's period.

1942-1944 Radio Scripts: These are programs prepared for the newly-established College radio station by the Department staff. Some of the programs seemed to be aimed at broadening understanding of physical education for children. Some are fitness-war effort oriented.

1930-1931, 1949 Rules and Regulations (Policies and Procedures), Department: This document is still revised and distributed each year. The content has changed but the general type of information is in many ways the same.
