Little did a small group know on May 6, 1914, that it would leave a legacy that spanned many generations when the first organizational meeting of the proposed Southwest Conference was held at the Oriental Hotel in Dallas. Since that fateful day the conference has survived two world wars, a pair of armed conflicts in Asia, rugged financial turmoil during the Great Depression years, and the conflicts and controversies that make college athletics the unique and entertaining aspect of society over three-quarters of a decade later. And the conference began a new chapter on Jan. 28,1993, when Steven J. Hatchell (formerly executive director of the Federal Express Orange Bowl in Miami) was named as the conference's fifth commissioner. His impact has been felt with the title sponsorship of the SWC Post-Season Basketball Classic by Dr Pepper and numerous marketing agreements to continue to spread the fame of the SWC throughout the nation. Entering the 1994-95 competitive seasons of nine men's championships (the 80th consecutive year of SWC competition in two sports or more) and eight women's title- attaining sports (in the SWC's 13th year of women's intercollegiate competition, starting in Sept., 1982), the SWC can boast of 62 NCAA or national wire service football championships in a total of 15 different men's and women's sports. In its infancy the SWC had an even wider geographical area than the current, eight-university league. Present for the May 6 meeting were representatives from Baylor University, Southwestern University, Oklahoma A&M College (now Oklahoma State), Texas A&M College, Louisiana State University, the University of Arkansas, and the University of Texas. At a meeting of the fledging group on Dec. 8, 1914, representatives from the University of Oklahoma and Rice Institute (now Rice University) at the Rice Hotel in Houston also were in attendance. Arkansas, Baylor, Southwestern, Oklahoma, Oklahoma A&M, Texas A&M, and Texas joined the two new colleges as charter members of what was called the Southwest Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The nation's fifth-oldest surviving collegiate conference was off and literally running. By March, 1915, the SWC already had its first football All-America choice in Oklahoma back Forest Geyer (1915) and had crowned its first basketball team champion after the 1914-15 campaign in Texas (5-0), which edged Rice (5-1) by a half-game for honors. In 1918 Rice returned to gridiron action while Southern Methodist University permanently replaced Southwestern, based in Georgetown, Texas, in the football standings. Oklahoma, which had a composite SWC record of 10-3-1 from 1915-19 and which captured the initial championship during the 1915 season, withdrew in 1920 and was replaced in that one season by Phillips University of Enid, Okla. Oklahoma A&M lasted until 1925 before leaving the league, but Texas Christian University of Fort Worth entered the scene during the 1923 season for the first of its 70 SWC campaigns. And when the conference began, the annual membership fee was a nominal $ 10. By 1932 annual dues was fixed at $100, and it has remained one of the nation's best athletics bargains for almost a century. On Nov. 24,1921, the first ex-officio "broadcast" of a sports event of any kind took place when Texas A&M Cadets W.A. "Doc" Tolson and Harry M. Saunders joined electrical CONFERENCE Southwest Conference Basketball
