The Dale Story Scrapbook consists of clippings, ephemera, and photographs documenting Story's national cross country championship in 1961 as well as other Oregon State University track and field athletes and events in 1961-1962, including sprinter Norm Monroe. The bulk of the scrapbook consists of newspaper clippings. Several ephemeral items are part of the scrapbook including a program for the Oregon State vs University of Washington dual meet in Corvallis in 1962. The photographs include one b/w print of Story with his NCAA championship trophy and 6 color snapshots taken at meets in the spring of 1962 (not held at Oregon State).
Because of the fragility of the original item, the Dale Story Scrapbook has been digitized as a preservation measure. Access to this digital surrogate of the Dale Story Scrapbook is available upon request or through the SCARC electronic records use kiosk in the SCARC reading room.
