Abstract

The National Association for Kinesiology and Physical Education in Higher Education (NAKPEHE) was previously the National Association for Physical Education in Higher Education (NAPEHE). It was formed in 1978 by the merger of two organizations: the National Association for Physical Education of College Women (NAPECW) and the National College Physical Education Association for Men (NCPEAM). The records include meeting minutes, correspondence, membership records, committee papers, publications, historical material, conference and workshop paperss, photographs, scrapbooks, and newsletters.

Arrangement Note

Materials are arranged in four series: 1. National Association for Physical Education of College Women Records; 2. National Association for Physical Education in Higher Education Records; 3. Membership Records; and 4. Unprocessed Materials. In cases in which folder numbers are hyphenated, the first part of the folder number represents the filing cabinet drawer number in which the folder was filed by the organization.

Method of Acquisition

The bulk of the material from the National Association for Physical Education of College Women was transferred by Marianna Trekell from the University of Illinois in 1981; the records were originally located at Smith College. Materials have been added on an irregular basis and incorporated into the existing collection since 1981.

Offensive Language Statement

The UNC Greensboro University Libraries collects, preserves, and makes accessible unique and historical materials for learning and research. The nature of historical materials is such that some material may represent positions, norms, and values that are offensive and objectionable. These materials represent the opinions and actions of their creators. By providing access to these records in our reading room and through our digital collections, we recognize that archives and rare books can play a vital role in holding those creators accountable and in helping us learn from the past.

Our finding aids and other collection descriptions may occasionally re-use language provided by creators or former holders of the materials, but we strive to place outdated or offensive terminology in context. That said, we recognize that we may not always make the right decision and welcome feedback from all sources so we can learn and adjust our practices. Please contact us at scua@uncg.edu if you encounter problematic language in our finding aids or other collection description. We will review the language and, as appropriate, update it in a way that balances preservation of the original context with our ongoing commitment to describing materials with respectful and inclusive language.
