The history of athletic activity on the University of Maryland campus stretches back to the 1860s, when the Maryland Agricultural College cadets first played baseball recreationally. Since those early days, the number and variety of sports in which members of the institution's community participate have increased greatly. Changes over time have included the widespread participation of women in intercollegiate athletics and the expansion in the number and size of athletic facilities on the campus. Archival material covers both intercollegiate and intramural activity from the 1870s to the present. Materials documenting university athletics include programs; media guides; publications; scrapbooks; budget documents; brochures; correspondence; newspaper clippings; reports; photographs and posters; audio and videotapes; film; and uniforms.

This resource guide describes holdings in the Archives and Manuscripts Department which document athletic activity at University of Maryland, College Park. It also lists other potential sources outside the Archives and Manuscripts Department.

University Archival Record Groups

University Publications

For more information, visit the University Archives.

The University Publications collection consists of a wide variety of printed materials produced by and about the various administrative units, academic departments, and student groups on the College Park campus. All University of Maryland intercollegiate teams are represented in the holdings. There are significant groupings of media guides, game day programs, and miscellaneous brochures. Football and men's basketball are particularly well-documented, although coverage is not comprehensive for either team's long history. Athletic-related academic programs, intramural sports and non-competitive athletic activities are also documented. In the listing below, the categories of publications appear in italics and are followed, in many cases, by relevant individual titles within that category.

Alumni Association. (UPUB A43) The Alumni Association promotes the university's interests and maintains a relationship with its graduates. This group of publications includes occasional athletic news in the Alumni Bulletin, between 1957 and 1971, the period for which the University Archives has holdings. Other items in the group include a program from a "Testimonial Dinner Honoring President Harry Clifton Byrd," featuring biographical information covering his days as student athlete and coach, and the "Alumni Log," a collection of newsletters dated 1927 to 1930, featuring reminiscences of games and players in the 1910s and 1920s.

Alumni Association International. (UPUB A44) This category contains Maryland, the alumni publication of the University of Maryland, which occasionally mentions university athletics; issues date from 1937 to 1980. A special issue dated July-August 1948 covers the athletic program in detail, including profiles and photographs of players, teams, and coaches.

Athletic Media Relations. (UPUB I11) This office, which provides information about university athletics to the media, was known as the Sports Information Office until 1996. This collection features the 1996 and 1998 editions of "Getting the Word Out," a newsletter about University of Maryland football, primarily about each year's team and including pictures of and statistics about team members and coaching staff. Each also features some Maryland football history, such as ACC championship team pictures and "Terps in the NFL."
See also Athletic Media Relations under University Archival Record Groups and Photographs.

Budget. (UPUB B7) The budget, produced by the Department of Budget and Fiscal Analysis, covers the entire university and includes expenditures for athletic programs, facilities, and staff salaries. Years of coverage include 1919 to the present; some budgets are more detailed than others. The budgets do not include "soft money" or grants, nor do they include bonuses, incentive pay, or any non-University of Maryland income earned by coaches.

Buildings and Grounds. (UPUB B9) This group includes items such as blueprints, floor plans, and other planning documents for new and existing campus buildings. Selected highlights include a program, "Dedication of the Ritchie Coliseum," dated January 20, 1932; a newsletter about the new multi-purpose recreation center that includes floor plans, background information on the need for the building, and the names of those who helped to finance it; and a report entitled "Reckord Armory feasibility study." Also included in this grouping is the final report for the task force charged with creating the recreation, physical education, and athletic facilities master plan. The University Archives holds only a very small number of scattered blueprints for athletic facilities, in this university publications category and under the records of the Department of Physical Plant. The main grouping of blueprints and specifications for campus buildings is maintained separately in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction archives.
See also Buildings and Grounds under Photographs.

Catalogs. (UPUB C11) The university publications collection includes a full run of course catalogs for both graduate and undergraduate offerings, beginning with the Maryland Agricultural College's first catalog in 1859 and continuing to the present. These volumes contain information on athletic fees charged to students, physical education requirements, and courses relating to physical education or other aspects of athletics. Many of the earliest catalogs have been digitized and are available at http://www.lib.umd.edu/univarchives/catalogs.html.

College Park Alumni Association. (UPUB C30) The College Park Alumni Association succeeded the university system-wide Alumni Association in 1988 when each campus was granted autonomy to create and maintain its own alumni organization. This collection consists of College Park Alumni Association publications. The University of Maryland alumni magazine, entitled College Park, features a section, "In Bounds," which reports athletic news. "Alumni Updates: The Newsletter for College Park Alumni" contains brief articles about athletes and Homecoming activities. Maryland Alumni, a publication that appeared between issues of College Park, included highlights of campus activities of interest to alumni and feature stories on particular graduates; it often contains brief pieces on athletic accomplishments or upcoming events.

Directories. (UPUB D7) The university publications collection contains a run of directories listing faculty, staff, and students on campus from 1927 to the present. These volumes include the names of the athletic administrative staff and coaches. The directories were published in several different combinations over the years - student-faculty-staff; student-faculty; faculty-staff; and students alone.

History of the University of Maryland. (UPUB H11) This category is a general catchall for pieces on University of Maryland history. Included are books, student papers, and newspaper clippings. George H. Callcott's A History of the University of Maryland (1966) discusses athletics at the university during the period from 1890 to 1950. Helpful index headings within Calcott's history include "Athletic Association," "Atlantic Coast Conference," "Baseball," "Basketball," "Bowl Games," "Football," "Gator Bowl," "Gymnasium," "Maryland Athletic Association," "Ritchie Coliseum," and "Ritchie Gymnasium." A second book, Forty Years as a College President: Memoirs of Wilson Elkins (1981), includes transcripts of conversations between Elkins and George H. Callcott. The men discuss athletics in Elkins's youth and during his years as University of Maryland president, 1954 to 1978. Chapter 5, "The University in the 1950s," treats the perceived tension between the university's academic and athletic goals at the time Elkins became president. In 2005, Callcott authored a second book on the university's history titled The University of Maryland at College Park, A History; it revises his earlier history and provides an account of the subsequent years. Index entries for athletics within this volume are divided into "Athletics after 1954," "Athletics and women," and "Athletics before 1954." Also relevant to university athletics in the 1950s is Bayard Webster's report, "The Fall and Rise of the University of Maryland," in which he details how the university faced the loss of accreditation because the athletic program was too prominent. Finally, this group contains a small selection of newspaper clippings about the "Queen's Game" in 1957, when Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip, visited the university to attend a football game.

Department of Intercollegiate Athletics. (UPUB I11) The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics provides the administrative framework for the university's athletic teams, as well as academic support services for student athletes, sports marketing, fan and ticketing services, and fundraising and alumni relations targeted at athletics.

The royal couple expressed an interest in seeing a typical American sport during their trip to the United States in the fall of 1957, and the convenient location of the College Park campus and the game's timing made the University of Maryland an ideal site for their visit. This event became known as the "Queen's Game." Photographs documenting the occasion include images of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Governor and Mrs. McKeldin, and President and Mrs. Elkins watching the game and aerial shots of band formations during half-time.
