Scope and Content

This small series was complied by the University of Northern Iowa Sports Information Office and its predecessor offices intermittently over the period of many years.  Work on this series seems to have begun in about 1947 and was then updated to a limited extent and on a number of occasions. Sources for information seem to have been the Old Gold, the student newspaper, and other sources. Contents include contest results and individual competitors' statistics. There are also brief lists of letter winners and All-Americans. Coverage varies widely over the years, but seems to be strongest beginning in about 1920. There is little or no order to the material in this collection.
