Historical Note

The football program at Michigan State University began as a club in 1895 and became a varsity sport in 1896. The first head football coach at MSU was appointed in 1897. The football program has participated as a member of Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (1896-1906), Independent (1907-1948) and Big Ten (from 1949).

Scope and Contents note

The records of the Football Office consist of subject files from Hugh “Duffy” Daugherty time as coach. Most of the records deal with various All-Star and regular season games. The All-Star game files consist of correspondence relating to the planning of the games, particularly to the involvement of Daugherty as a coach or to the selection of MSU players. The regular season games are organized by the name of the opponent. The materials include routine correspondence between coaches, travel lists of players, playing times and the assignment of officials. Also of interest are several folders containing Intercollegiate Conference (Big Ten) memoranda. These memoranda, which were sent by the Conference office to all head coaches, deal with such issues as officiating, recruiting and rule changes.
