Collection Description

Historical Note

The University of Georgia Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs compete in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I and are members of the Southeastern Conference (SEC). The official mascot is an English bulldog named Uga, (derived from an abbreviation of the University of Georgia), while the costumed character version of Uga is Hairy Dawg. The Bulldog name has its origins in a 1920 Atlanta Constitution article by sportswriter Morgan Blake, who cited the animal's dignity and ferocity.

The University of Georgia sponsors nineteen sports – baseball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's cross country, women's equestrian, football, men's and women's golf, women's gymnastics, women's soccer, softball, men's and women's swimming and diving, men's and women's tennis, men's and women's track, and women's volleyball. Those 19 teams have won a combined 41 national championships (including 28 NCAA championships) and 151 Southeastern Conference championships through the end of the 2013–14 school year.

Scope and Content

The collection contains correspondence representing two distinct time periods: the 1920-1930s era of the UGA Athletic Association during which lawyer and booster Harold Hirsch was involved with the Athletic Board, and the 1980-1981 season. A highlight of the collection are the minutes of the Athletic Board from 1928-1972. Also included are subject files, NCAA self-studies, and playbooks and scouting reports, most of which date from Vince Dooley's tenure as head football coach.
