UBC Archives has received an extensive collection of materials from UBC’s Department of Athletics and Recreation, totalling nearly 8,000 photographs along with textual records like scrapbooks, posters, programs, team rosters, scoresheets, training schedules and other administrative documents from the athletics side of the department. The records span a century from approximately 1915 to 2015, and reflect the university’s rich sporting history, says archivist John Moran, who has been leading the archiving project for the last two years.
