Scope and Contents of the Materials

Collection Historical Note

Although Women’s Intercollegiate Athletics has been a program at SIU since 1940, it seems to be a late bloomer. Relatively little can be found about its early history, so it is assumed that the women’s program is similar to the Intercollegiate Athletics Program for Men in that it was once a part of physical education in the College of Education, and became a unit responsible to the Vice President for University Relations. In 1981 it was transferred to the Office of Student Affairs. Charlotte West was the director.

Biographical Note

Southern Illinois University was chartered in 1869 and opened its doors to the first class of entering students in 1874.  Originally, the university was called Southern Illinois Normal University.  "Normal" Universities in 1874 were teacher's colleges, aimed at standardizing and improving public education in the state by providing more accessible college-level instruction to teachers.  Southern Illinois Normal University was the second such university to be established in Illinois.  Its first president in 1874 was Robert Allyn.
