Sport in American Education: History & Perspective. History of Sport and Physical Education Academy Symposia (March 24, 1977 and April 6, 1978).
Ladd, Wayne M., Ed.; Lumpkin, Angela, Ed.
The foundations of the educational sporting heritage are examined in this collection of articles. The book is divided into two topical sections--Interscholastic Sport and Intercollegiate Sport. Both units are introduced by a study of a significant individual who was either a leader in or a reflector of sport in education, and are followed by papers which expand on historical foundations of specific aspects of educational sports.
