Collection Overview

Title: Midwest Collegiate Athletic Conference, 1923; 1963-1969; 1976

ID: 01/04/189

Primary Creator: Midwest Collegiate Athletic Conference

Extent: 3.0 Cubic Feet

Scope and Contents of the Materials

The papers of Carleton's representative to the Midwest Collegiate Athletic Conference, 1963-69, plus additional conference meeting minutes and information booklets.  Much of the original collection was comprised of newsletters from the NCAA, which were discarded.  What remained was organized into four series.  The Correspondence series is composed primarily of routine communication with the MCAC, although there is some interesting material on a proposed NCAA minimum grade-point for player eligibility, on student scholarships, on athletic recruitment policies, and on the debate over freshmen eligibility.  The second series is MCAC Minutes.  These, too, are largely routine, but include discussion of the introduction of women's varsity sports, eligibility guidelines, and recruitment.  The third series is composed of the MCAC Guide to Athletic Conduct, a history of the organization (1963), and two printed constitutions.  The fourth series comprises 10 years of MCAC Information Booklets for Press and Radio.  The final series is a Miscellaneous folder containing eligibility (i.e., grade-point) information about Carleton students.  This folder is not available to researchers except under certain conditions.

Much additional material, including correspondence relating to the formation of the Conference and the later dropping of Beloit College from the Conference, may be found in the President's Office files.
