Historical NoteReturn to Top

Intercollegiate athletics have been a component of campus life at Oregon State University and its antecedents since the school's football team kicked off for the first time in November 1893. In well over a century of competition since, university teams have claimed national championships in cross country (1961) and baseball (2006, 2007 and 2018), and individuals have won national titles in crew, gymnastics, golf, track and field, and wrestling.

In addition to football (1893), the sports depicted in this finding aid trace their Oregon State origins to the following years: baseball (1907), basketball (1901), rowing (1926), and track and field (1895). Roseburg native and Olympian Jean Saubert (1942-2007), who claimed two medals in skiing events at the 1964 Innsbruck games, completed her OSU degree in education in 1966.

Oregon native Tom Gabel has collected sports-related photographs for many years. The photos described in this collection were once held by the Oregonian newspaper as a component of their sports archive. When a private company acquired the archive, Gabel subsequently purchased photographs related to OSU and University of Oregon athletics, as well as the Portland Buckaroos (ice hockey), Portland Beavers (baseball), Portland Trailblazers (basketball) and other images related to sporting endeavors in the state of Oregon.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Tom Gabel Collection of Oregon State Athletics Photographs consist primarily of black and white images documenting football and basketball at Oregon Agricultural College, Oregon State College, and Oregon State University. The collection likewise contains documentation of Oregon State baseball, track and field, and rowing, as well as a handful of photographs of Athletic Department staff and Oregon State alumna Jean Saubert, who claimed silver and bronze medals in downhill skiing events at the 1964 Winter Olympics.

More than three-quarters of the collection is devoted to Oregon State football and basketball, and the majority of the images in each series are portraits of athletes or coaches formally posing or re-enacting game play for the camera. The collection also includes journalistic imagery from actual games. Notable figures depicted in the collection include Heisman Trophy winner Terry Baker, OSU basketball greats Mel Counts, Steve Johnson, Charlie Sitton, and Gary Payton, high jumper Dick Fosbury, and famed Oregon State coaches Slats Gill, Tommy Prothro and Ralph Miller.

Nearly all of the photographs were taken by news services and many are heavily annotated. Attribution information as well as the text of the original annotations have been included on the item level within this finding aid. A small number of color photographs are available in the collection. The photographs were compiled and donated by collector Tom Gabel.
