A Proposal for the Establishment of University Centers for the History, Philosophy, and Comparative Aspects of Physical Education and Sport.
Zeigler, Earle F.; Glassford, R. G.
This proposal for the establishment of university centers for the history, philosophy, and comparative aspects of physical education and sport is based on the assumption that there is a need for, and a developing interest in, improved teaching, research, and service in these subdisciplinary areas of the field of physical education and sport. The field of physical education and sport is faced with the absolute necessity of retooling in order to upgrade its research efforts in these areas. As planned, there would be five subdivisions within the proposed centers: (1) a teaching and research subdivision, (2) an oral history research office, (3) a sport museum, (4) a physical education and sport review and/or journal, and (5) a documentation division. Also, the establishment of a theme or approach around which the center could base its efforts would be of considerable advantage to the project. (Included are explanations of how the various subdivisions of the proposed center might function, and what the work of each would probably entail.) (RC)
