Abstract: The purpose of this study was to prepare an historical account of the intercollegiate athletic program for men at Elon College from 1889 through the 1980-1981 school year. In achieving this purpose, an attempt was made to reflect the spirit and philosophy of the campus through the years and not merely to present a series of records, list of coaches, participants, and scores. Thus the purpose of this research was to present an accurate, descriptive account of intercollegiate athletics for men at Elon College. The historical method of investigation was used for the study. This study utilized both a topical and chronological order. Two principal sources were used in data collecting: interviews and printed materials. Appropriate photographs supplement the text. In preparation for the study standard resources in historical research, the history of sport, and other theses and dissertations dealing with the historical development of programs in other colleges were reviewed.
