Collecting Girls’ and Women’s Sport Histories in Iowa


Established in 1992, the Louise Noun – Mary Louise Smith Iowa Women’s Archives collects and makes available historical materials that tell the stories of Iowa women from all walks of life.

In an effort to broaden its sport-related collections representatives from the Archives and Sport Studies faculty from the University of Iowa Department of American Studies are organizing a collection weekend.

Please stop by to tell us your stories, ask questions about donating historical materials, or to donate documents, photographs, or other items related to 6-on-6 basketball or other sporting experiences.
