Scope and Content

This collection consists of newsclippings related to University of Northern Iowa intercollegiate athletics. 

First, there are two boxes of photocopied newsclippings relating to intercollegiate baseball, men's and women's basketball, volleyball, and wrestling at the University of Northern Iowa. There are some early photocopies from the student newspapers, but most of the clippings are from the Des Moines Register and the Waterloo Courier beginning in about 1990. These clippings came from the Information File in the University Archives, which, from time to time, is weeded by date in order to make room for newer information. The material that is removed from the Information File goes to this archives series.
