Quick Reference

Sources of research data in which documents and artefacts have been saved, collected, and/or classified. Archives can range from modest collections of unique documentation (such as that of individual sporting entrepreneurs or athletes) to highly formalized collections (such as the files of meetings and correspondence of the International Olympic Committee, housed in the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland; or the collection of Olympic Games posters collected and classified in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, UK). Care must be taken by the researcher to authenticate the archival source, or locate corroborating data or evidence. Finding a unique archival source is the dream of the sport historian, but careful scrutiny is still essential to contextualize such sources alongside complementary sources of data and alternative accounts or bodies of evidence.
