Joe F. Blair, who chose to refer to himself as "joe blair," was the University of Maryland sports information director from 1950 until 1962, and the football publicist from 1988 until his death in November 1995. Most prints in this primarily photographic collection cover the 1950s and are football-oriented, including the "Queen's Game" in 1957; a few photographs are of basketball. A preliminary inventory is available.
