The records of KAHPERD reflect a variety of activities and campaigns to increase public awareness of the need for a well balanced physical education program in the state's schools and colleges. Unfortunately, there is very little documentation on the early years of the organization. This deficiency is offset somewhat by the diligent work of longtime KAHPERD officer Minnie Maude Macaulay who compiled a vast amount of information about the nascent organization in a publication entitled Progress 1909-1973. Of particular interest is the Publication Series which contains a complete set of the KAHPERD Journal. Many of the records document activities associated with the organization's annual convention. Also, there is extensive information about past presidents of the organization in a series of folders entitled "Historical and Biographical Data" in the Subject Series.
