Transcript History of the Southeastern Conference The 10 universities comprising the Southeastern Conference began athletics competition with one another as members of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association, organized at a meeting of the faculty representatives, called by Dr. William L. Dudley of Vanderbilt, in Atlanta, December 22, 1894. Student teams from the schools were meeting in various sports with little pattern to their contests. Baseball was the most popular campus sport, but the American adaptation of the English game, rugby, called "football," was drifting down from the East and Midwest. Southerners were quickly attracted to this sport formalized in 1869. The first football game in the Southeast was played April 9, 1880, on the grounds now called Old Stoll Field at the University of Kentucky. Kentucky, then known as Kentucky A&M, was simply host to the contest, in which Transylvania College, then called Kentucky University, upset Centre College, 133/4 to 0. Basketball moved quickly to the South. Originated by Dr. James Naismith at Springfield College, in 1891, it was being played at the Nashville, Tennessee, YMCA by Vanderbilt in 1893. The Commodores won 9-6 in a game with nine players on each team. It became an intercollegiate sport in 1901, and by 1908, Vanderbilt was meeting Columbia and Yale intersectionally. Representatives of seven schools attended an SIAA organizational meeting and 12 more joined during the first year of operation. Dr. Dudley was elected president and served until his death in 1914. By 1920 the SIAA had expanded to 30 members, so on December 12-13 of that year, in a meeting at Gainesville, Florida, the larger schools reorganized as the Southern Conference. Professor S.V. Sanford of Georgia, who called the meeting, served as the first president. Despite an original limit of 16, the membership grew to 23 by 1928. At one time or another the SIAA and the Southern Conference included most of the Southern colleges from Virginia to Texas. At the annual Southern Conference meeting of December 8-9, 1932, in Knoxville, Tennessee, the 13 members west and south of the Appalachians reorganized as the Southeastern Conference, with 10 coast Vanderbilt Athletics Director Roy Kramer was named the Southeastern Conference's sixth commissioner January 10, 1990. members remaining as the Southern. Dr. Frank L. McVey of Kentucky was elected president of the new conference. He held an informal meeting of the school presidents February 16, 1933, in Birmingham, Alabama, then the first full meeting in Atlanta, February 27. Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Louisiana State, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Sewanee, Tennessee, Tldane and Vanderbilt were the charter members of the SEC. On December 13, 1940, however, Sewanee withdrew, then on June 1, 1964, Georgia Tech, and on June 1, 1966, Tulane. The Office of Commissioner was created in 1940, due to the great amount of detail work developing, especially in recruiting and eligibility. Martin S. Conner of Jackson, Mississippi, a former governor of the state, took office August 21 of that year as an extension of the authority of the presidents. Late in 1946, Conner became incapacitated due to illness and the secretary of the conference, Dean N.W. Dougherty of Tennessee, served as acting commissioner dur ing the fell of 1946. Bernie H. Moore, former coach of Louisiana State was appointed the second fulltime commissioner February 21, 1948, and guided the league to national respect in his 18 years of service. A.M. (Tonto) Coleman succeeded Moore upon his retirement April 1, 1966. The native of Alabama and experienced in coaching and administering athletics in both the Southwest and Southeast, served 6V2 years. Dr. Boyd McWhorter, dean of Arts and Sciences at Georgia and secretary of the SEC since January, 1967, succeeded Coleman August 1, 1972. Under his leadership the SEC experienced growth in every way possible. In McWhorter's first year, the SEC distributed $1,570,591.40; 14 years later in 1986, the SEC distributed $15,000,000 to its schools. Dr. Harvey W. Schiller, an Air Force colonel and faculty chair at the Air Force Academy, succeeded McWhorter September 15, 1986. Vanderbilt Athletics Director Roy Kramer was named the league's sixth commissioner January 10, 1990. Q 40
