Athletic Conference Membership of Case, WRU, and CWRU

The University Archives' staff has compiled summaries from sources in the Archives about athletic conference membership at Case Institute of Technology, Western Reserve University and Case Western Reserve University from 1902 through 2002.

Mid-American Conference (MAC)

University Athletic Association (UAA)

*Case Institute of Technology and Western Reserve University federated on July 1, 1967 to create Case Western Reserve University. Despite federation, Case and WRU maintained separate varsity teams. As each sport merged between 1969 and 1972, separate Case and WRU memberships were replaced by a single CWRU membership.

This summary was compiled by staff of the Archives from sources in the custody of the Archives.
