Russell Rice collection on UK sports now online

The Russell Rice collection on University of Kentucky sports (10.5 cubic feet, 30 boxes; dated 1876-1994 and undated, bulk 1920-1973) is now available on ExploreUK. The collection is comprised of sports-related materials gathered by Russell Rice, which largely focus on University of Kentucky basketball and football but also include materials related to other campus sports. There is extensive coverage of Adolph Rupp, specifically in the areas of correspondence and photographic materials, as well as correspondence related to the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts (1968-1991). Rice was the sports information director for the University of Kentucky Athletics Department (1968-1987)
