Scope and Contents

The U.H. Forensics Team Records contains newspaper articles, schedules of tournament events, correspondence, tapes, and photographs relating to the U.H. Forensics Team between the years of 1956-1973. Typically the newspaper articles describe the team's performance at various national tournaments. During the 1960s, the U.H. Forensics Team was considered as one of the top rated teams in the country, defeating teams like Harvard in 11 debates while only losing to them 4 times. In 1969, the U.H. debate team won 137 of the 159 debates that they participated in with Dr. William English winning coach of the year. Following the 1969 season, Dr. English spoke about team members Mike Miller, a political science junior, and David Seikel, a political science senior, and said that the two held the "best record of any intercollegiate debate team ever." He then added, "There probably never will be a better team."

The U.H. Forensics Team Records arrived at the archives in very good order, which has been maintained where possible. The collection consists mainly of newspaper clippings directly related to the organization and to the debates that it participated in, however there are a small number of photographs, tournament results, and tapes of the National Debate Tournaments from 1956-1966 also found in the collection.

For preservation and access reasons the collection has been re-boxed and re-foldered. New folder titles conform, as closely as possible, to original folder titles, except when the original was obviously incomplete, incorrect, or confusing. Original folder and item order has been maintained whenever possible. Exceptions were made when folders were obviously misfiled or when no order was apparent.
