Women in Physical Education and Sports at Centre College from 1860 to 1978.
Baird, Kitty R.
This brief history of women's participation in college sports at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky, is divided into four sections. The first period prior to 1901 coincides with the later Victorian era. The second period from 1901 to 1926 includes the first World War and the passage of the 19th amendment. The years from 1926 to 1959 are spanned in the third period. A movement toward equality and opportunity in physical education and sports characterizes the fourth period from 1959 to 1978. Changing attitudes and philosophies about women's athletics are discussed within these time frames. (JD)
