A magazine article by Princeton president James McCosh supports Harvard’s Eliot: college sports interfere with more important college priorities——the “enthusiasm of the college is visibly in favor, not of literature or science … but of muscle and bones.” Camp responds in a newspaper letter, contending that athletics and academic achievement can coexist and documenting with Yale student records that college athletes have significant academic achievements. Camp meets and dates Alice Sumner.

Keywords: college priorities; academic achievement; athletic competition; coexist; James McCosh, Camp; newspaper letter; Alice Sumner
