Natalie Reichart attended Oregon Agricultural College from 1917 to 1920. She earned her undergraduate degree from Columbia University and graduate degree from New York University. She returned to Oregon State College as faculty member in physical education in 1925, a position she held until 1945.
Gilman Keasey was National Archery Champion in 1935 and 1936 and taught a new course in archery for men at Oregon State College in 1935-1936; he returned to Oregon State in the fall of 1945 to teach archery to veterans taking physical education.
The Natalie Reichart Papers consist of the manuscript, illustrations, and photographs for Archery, the third edition of an archery textbook written by Reichart and Keasey. It was first published in 1936 as Modern Methods in Archery; A Text for Students and Teachers in Fundamentals of Target Archery.
Both Keasey and Reichart are shown in the photographs demonstrating proper archery techniques and handling. The photographs also depict archery equipment.
