Collection Overview

Biography / History
Intercollegiate athletics for both men and women have been an integral part of Eastern Kentucky University since its inception in 1906. The position of athletic director had been around for many years but it became more institutionalized in 1928 when Thomas E. McDonough assumed leadership. McDonough was largely responsible for overseeing the construction of the Weaver Health Building (1931) which is still being used for classes and Old Hanger Stadium (1936). After McDonough's resignation in 1942, Charles "Turkey" Hughes took over the position. Mr. Hughes was responsible for restarting athletic programs which were temporarily dismantled due to World War II. In 1961, Glenn Presnell took over the job as athletic director. Presnell was director during a period of rapid expansion at the university. During his administration, Alumni Coliseum (1962) and the new Hanger Stadium (1969) were both constructed. Donald Combs assumed the position in 1971 and still holds it today. During his tenure, women's sports were readded to the university's program after being discontinued in the early 1930s. When womens' sports were reconstituted in 1973, a separate office, headed by Dr. Martha Mullins, was established to control their functions. However, in the early 1980s, the two athletic offices were combined. Now, the athletic director is in charge of men's sports and the assistant director is in charge of women's sports. Many changes have taken place in the Athletic Director's Office, but it continues to remain a vital part of Eastern Kentucky University.
