Hugh Morton photographs and films: Sports, 1930s-early 2000s (Series 6).

Series 6 consists of approximately 51,000 images of or pertaining to sports and sporting events, largely at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, but also at other institutions, largely in the Atlantic Coast Conference, and including some professional, informal, and children's sports activities. Where image dates are unknown (as in many cases), a date range has been estimated based on film type and subject matter. Additional images of sports figures (athletes and coaches) in non-sports contexts are included in Series 2 (People and Events). Images of boys' sports activities at Camp Yonahnoka in Linville, N.C., are included in Subseries 2.3 (though some of Camp Yonahnoka but not identified as such may be included in Series 6).
