Name of creator
The Men's Athletic Association (MAA) was established at UBC to oversee all-male athletic activities and manage and distribute the athletic budget. The MAA executive was composed of an elected president and treasurer, the various appointed team managers, and faculty members. In 1939 the executive was reduced to an advisory capacity, responsible for running Association meetings. In its place, the Men's Athletic Directorate was established, with more balanced representation and more representative of the Alma Mater Society. The directorate was reconstituted as an autonomous body, no longer under the control of the AMS Student Council, in 1945.
Scope and content
Fonds consists of minutes of the M.A.A. executive; correspondence with the A.M.S., the Western Cananda Intercollegiate Athletic Union (W.C.I.A.U.), the various University athletic clubs, and other bodies; financial records; and records of awards given to University athletes.
Immediate source of acquisition
Acquired in two accruals: in 1991 from the M.A.A., and in 1994 after being found in one of the basements of the Mathematics Building (under the Math 100 lecture hall) by asbestos inspectors from Plant Operations.
