Varsity Sports History


In Recollections and on our web site, the Archives has attempted to make Case Western Reserve University’s varsity sports history a little more accessible. We’ve posted descriptions of the origins of the Case-Reserve Thanksgiving Day football game and the memorable 1948 game when Case broke Reserve's 21-year winning streak.

Our web site has career records and pictures of varsity head coaches from 1880-2000. We’ve also compiled the season records of every varsity sport from 1880-2000. There’s a summary of our athletic conference memberships from 1902-2002 and the team names, mascots, and colors from 1918-2004.

That’s a lot of data. But it only touches the surface of the information about our athletic history documented in the Archives. For those who’d like to do their own research, here’s a summary of some of the sources in our collection.

Game programs and media guides that describe the players, coaches, and games

Rosters, schedules, and game statistics

Administrative records of the Athletic Directors and Sports Information Directors

Records of the Case Athletic Association

Student newspapers and yearbooks that cover the games and seasons

Photographs of teams, individual players and coaches, and games

Our web site has tips for doing research in the Archives and contact information.
