This office, known as Athletic Media Relations since 1996, provided information about university athletics to the media. The collection consists of photographs, newspaper clippings, memorabilia, scrapbooks, publications, and correspondence. While the collection primarily documents the football team, other sports, such as men's basketball in the 1960s to 1980s, are covered as well. One scrapbook covers women's athletics from 1975 to 1982. Another scrapbook records the accomplishments of women's rifle shooter Irene Knox. Preliminary inventories are available for most accessions.
