The Jackrabbit Athtletics - SDSU collection contains published and unpublished photographs, publications, such as media guides and programs, and records from the South Dakota State University Athletic Department Jackrabbit Sports Information Service. Collection notes: Some photographs depict men's athletics jerseys with logos bearing initials with the university's previous names (SDSU was founded in 1881 as the Dakota Agricultural College. When South Dakota became a state in 1889, the college was renamed South Dakota Agricultural College. In 1907 it became the South Dakota State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, and in 1964, it became South Dakota State University.) South Dakota State University women's athletics began in 1965. In the early years of women's athletics, there was only one uniform for multiple sports, and many of the athletes were on multiple teams.
