Scope and Content Note

This collection documents women's athletic programs and achievements at Northeastern University from 1974-1990 with the bulk of the material dating from 1975-1985. It primarily consists of records donated by Jeanne Rowlands, former Director of the Department of Women's Athletics at Northeastern University. The collection focuses on the tennis team, but also includes material on the basketball, cross country, gymnastics, ice hockey, and swimming teams. Included are financial records, budgets, travel and supply records, mission statements, team rosters, scholarship information, and pamphlets concerning behavioral practices, training methods and team goals. Articles about the various teams of the Department of Women's Athletics have also been included. The publication of "Relay" is the only issue produced of what was intended to be a biannual newsletter from the Department of Women's Athletics.
