Berea College women's basketball oral history collection / by Tom Chase.

Audio compact disc recordings and transcripts of 16 interviews recorded by Tom Chase in 2008, mostly with women who played varsity (intercollegiate) basketball at Berea College during the program's first three decades (early 1960s to 2008). The exceptions are three Berea College faculty members who coached and taught physical education (Martha Beagle, Mark Tobin and Martha Joyce May Hager, who gave two interviews), and an Eastern Kentucky University faculty member with many years of experience coaching, officiating and writing about women's collegiate athletics (Peggy Stanaland). Two former players opted to submit written memoirs rather than be interviewed.
