The purpose of this study was to trace the history and development of the Health and Physical Education Program in North Texas State Teachers College from the year 1914 to 1939 to determine the contribution this department has made in the development of the College. As a reslut of the foregoing study, the following conclusions were reached: 1. The success of the Health and the Physical Education Department was due to the foundation upon which it was built; this foundation was laid by responsible and well-trained men and women. 2. The personnel has increased from one teacher to nine regular staff members. 3. The number of credit courses in the department has increased in twenty-five years from one to forty-three. 4. The students trained in this department are equipped to teach all phases of Health and Physical Education work in the public and private schools, and in the various types of summer camps. 5. The Health and Physical Education facilities have grown from a two room gymnasium in the basement of the Historical Building, a baseball field, a tennis court and basketball court, to a well-equipped Health and Physical Education plant. This plant now consists of a modern fire-proof sanitarium with a staff of twodoctors, three graduate nurses, a dietition, and a housekeeper; two gymnasium; an athletic field house; two gridirons; stadium; swimming pool; four croquet courts; one outdoor concrete slab used for dancing and skating; basketball and tennis courts; an archery range; an outdoor theatre; a miniature golf course; putting greens; thirteen tennis courts; picnic grounds; and space for horse shoe pitching; soft ball and other games. 6. The Recreation Park is one of the best of its kind in connection with a college in the United States. 7. Though the Health and Physical Education Plant represents a large investment, it is a real asset to the college. 8. As a result of athletic accomplishments, the college has become internationally known.
