    Title: College athletic games diagrams collection
    Dates: 1928-1957
    Physical Description: 0.5 linear foot
    Summary: This collection contains diagrams of college football games (Stanford, other West Coast teams, or those played in the Bay Area) drawn on graph paper, laid out with the yard markings of a football field with other symbols representing plays. One diagram was signed "done by Mary Ellen Stowe age 11" and one other bears her initials (both undated), but it is unclear if she was the only author. The collection also includes some diagrams for basketball games, Stanford game programs, notes, and clippings of sports cartoons from the STANFORD DAILY. Some of the notes and diagrams were done on the letterhead of Stowe's Complete Record Shop run by Frank E. Stowe.
    Language(s): The materials are in English.
