This collection contains diagrams of college football games
(Stanford, other West Coast teams, or those played in the Bay Area) drawn on graph
paper, laid out with the yard markings of a football field with other symbols
representing plays. One diagram was signed "done by Mary Ellen Stowe age 11" and one
other bears her initials (both undated), but it is unclear if she was the only author.
The collection also includes some diagrams for basketball games, Stanford game programs,
notes, and clippings of sports cartoons from the STANFORD DAILY. Some of the notes and
diagrams were done on the letterhead of Stowe's Complete Record Shop run by Frank E.
