- These papers largely reflect Shuer's interest in women's sports and include correspondence, clippings, articles, reports, notes, and assorted records from several Stanford University athletic committees and from its Department of Athletics, Physical Education and Recreation. The clippings primarily date from the 1970s, with some from the 1990s. The correspondence includes incoming and outgoing letters; subjects include her participation in Stanford athletic committees, her own career, and the effort to get recognition for Stanford women athletes. Also of note in the papers are materials from a questionnaire distributed to female athletes at Stanford in 1971.
