Collection Historical Note

The Women's Physical Education Majors (PEM) Club is believed to have started in the 1923 school year. Since the Physical Education Department was split into men's and women's divisions, there was a PEM club for each group. The women's club often shortened its name to PEM Club and was the most active of the two clubs in the department. PEM Club often teamed with the Women's Recreation Association (WRA) to organize intramural events. In 1965, the university moved forward with a plan to offer liberal arts programs, thus creating colleges in 1967. The men and women divisions of the Physical Education Department were placed under one title and housed under the umbrella of the College of Applied Science and Technology. The club survived through these changes and remained active on campus offering women's and co-ed sporting activities. It is unclear when the club dissolved, though many of its organizational activities were taken up by the Intercollegiate Athletics for Women. Some students did try and revive the club for a short period of time in the early 1990's. The Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) is the current version of this organization.

Biographical Note

The club was formed during the 1963-1964 school year and was originally called the Women's Physical Education Club. There was both a Men's and Women's Physical Education Major's Club but the Women's club was more active.
