Comma (2009), 2009, (2), 93–102.

Abstract

Intercollegiate athletics has long played in important if sometimes problematic role in American college and university life — as a vital part of extra-curriculum activity, as a connection to the alumni, as a principle point of identification and interaction with the general public and as a source of revenue and expense. The relationships between athletic departments and the university archives charged with documenting them has often been a difficult one. This article examines the development of a partnership between the University of Michigan Athletic Department and the University Archives Program of the Bentley Historical Library to the benefit of both.
