As images started pouring in, themes began to emerge. In this exhibit we are showcasing images of Women Athletes, Famous Faces, Amateur Hour, Academics and Athletics and Environmental Recreation. Many of our images fit into more than one theme - at the bottom of each page is a gallery with all relevant images and information about the larger collection they come from, as well as their parent institution. We also have a gallery with all of our images - take a look!
To kick us off, let's listen to Chicago legend Harry Caray leading a rousing rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." This audio clip is from the Bob Crawford audio archive at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Special Collections and University Archives.
Now that we are in a sports state of mind, we can explore the various themes linked below. The themes discussed in this exhibit are not meant to be read in any particular order, and you can start with any topic. You can always come back to this home page by clicking on the bulleted list icon on the top left of your screen. You can navigate to any of the other themes or our resources page from that icon as well.
