Collection primarily includes published items such as programs, media guides, team previews, newsletters, press releases, clippings, and magazine articles, but also includes some game statistics, tickets, photographs, and correspondence. The emphasis is on spring sports such as basketball, track, tennis, baseball, swimming, and golf; there is very little on football. Of note are the photographs of individual golfers illustrating swings from the late 1930s-early 1940s. Collection also includes some materials pertaining to the Golden State Warriors (NBA).
