A Photo History of PMC-Widener Athletics

October 6, 2011

The new Widener Magazine that is arriving in mailboxes this week features the photo essay, “A Long History of Athletics on Campus.”  The hardest part about compiling this piece was choosing the photos because there were so many, many excellent shots in the Widener University Archives.  We had to cut quite a few great photos, such as the two images here: a 1960 Pennsylvania Military College football game, and a circa 1890 tennis match when the school was known as Pennsylvania Military Academy. (You can click on the photos to enlarge the images.)

Fortunately, however, you can peruse many of the photos I didn’t use, as well as historical documents, in the online exhibit 100 Years of Athletics: 1866 to 1966 in the Wolfgram Memorial Digital Collections.  Be sure to check it out. –-Sam Starnes, Editor.
