Abstract: It was the purpose of this study to trace the conditions and circumstances which led to the formation of the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women and to study the inception of that organization. The development of semi-governance bodies was investigated to determine how such development influenced the establishment of the AIAW. Critical issues which influenced the AIAW and its precedent organizations were explored. Viable patterns for the future were suggested in reference to the historical perspective. Data were gathered through personal interviews with selected knowledgeable persons. Structured interview questions were taped. The archives of the National Association for Girls and Women in Sport were thoroughly examined and pertinent information was photocopied.
