Howard Burton Shipley (1890-1976) graduated from the Maryland Agricultural College in 1914 as a multi-sport athlete in baseball, basketball, and football. Shipley returned to Maryland after a brief coaching stint at the University of Delaware and served as the first head coach of the Maryland basketball team from 1923 to 1947, head coach of the baseball team from 1924 to 1960, and assistant coach for the football team in 1923. This collection contains black and white photographs of Shipley as a student and coach at Maryland, as well as images of his wife Miriam, daughter Josephine, and other Maryland athletes and coaches. Also included are newspaper clippings following Shipley's career, documentation from his retirement dinner in 1960, and photocopies of the book Red, White, and Amen: Maryland Basketball by Kent Baker.
