Naismith, James  
1930's James Naismith Typed Manuscript with Handwritten Notes re: Physiology of Basketball. More than fifty pages on the subject of "The Physiology of Basketball" are replete with handwritten edits and notations. The work covers the subject from multiple aspects, including training, wear on tissues, height/weight factors, and endurance. Included is one typed chart measuring "active time" within the overall time for a game played by K.U. in Lawrence against Drake on October 31, 1925. Even more intriguing is a hand drawn and colored chart by Naismth tracking action, relaxation and rest. There are charts comparing the height and weight by position, with one noting that the University of Kansas center was six feet even. (see 7932 through 7932_5 to view other images) (Item 7932_2)
