Athletics Media Guides

Identifier: 18/01/07

Scope and Contents

The athletics media guides provide an impressive amount of information about University of Northern Iowa athletics teams. The earliest guides, produced by George Holmes, cover several sports, usually by fall, winter, and spring seasons. Later guides cover only one sport. These guides typically present information about coaches and all members of a team, results from the previous season, names of letter winners, upcoming season prospects, and, occasionally, team history. The later guides include team, individual, and action photographs. Some of these guides have been digitized and are available online in ScholarWorks.
