The war seriously interrupted high school sports scheduling due to the rationing of gasoline and the inability of schools to acquire buses for team transportation.
Shortly after the end of the war, the Board of Control voted to hire a full time commissioner to oversee all the Association's activities.
Longtime board member Theodore A. Sanford of Henderson was selected. Under Sanford's direction the Association grew and prospered, with revenues from the boy's basketball tournament showing a substantial increase.
Sanford negotiated the KHSAA's television contract for the boy's basketball tournament and during his tenure, the Association moved to its first permanent location on Rose Street in Lexington. Additionally, the integration of all black high schools into the KHSAA in the late s occurred during his presidency. Sanford retired in and was replaced by his longtime assistant Joe Bill Mansfield who was succeeded by Tom Mills in In response to a federal court order inthe Association added a black assistant commissioner Louis Stout inas well as two black members to the Board of Control.
In the organizations first female assistant commissioner Diane Caines was selected following the return of the Girl's State Basketball Tournament in The composition of the Board of Control has changed to its current total of twelve members two of which must be black and two of which must be female. In response to dwindling attendance at the boy's basketball tournament in Louisville in the early s, the Association moved the championship to Rupp Arena in Lexington for several years.
Attendance, as well as revenue, increased dramatically. Under the direction of current Commissioner Tom Mills, the Association has continued to grow with the addition of championships in soccer and softball, the continued growth of both boy's and girl's basketball tournaments, and the inception of a program to help with drug and substance abuse. Because of school consolidation the Association's current membership has decreased to members.

Arranging and describing the records in a formal and complete manner began in Careful attention was given to maintaining the records in the original order in which they were received; however, it became necessary once processing commenced to establish several new series, especially among the earliest records, since there was no discernible pattern of arrangement.
The finished processed collection consists of boxes and over 50 films and videotapes which are divided into twelve series.
According to provisions of the Agreement of Deposit the entire collection is open for research, but permission to quote extensively or make copies of audio-visual materials must be received from the KHSAA. The KHSAA records are an excellent source for historical information on the Association's activities in particular and twentieth century Kentucky high school sports in general. Numerous historical trends and themes can be traced in the records. Of particular interest is the relationship of high school athletics and local and state political activities.
The records, especially the Minutes of the Board of Control and the Tournament Correspondence Series, document the intense personal and economic rivalry between Louisville and Lexington to attract the Boy's Sweet Sixteen basketball championship games to their respective cities.
The Eligibility Lists and Correspondence Series is of vital interest to those doing genealogical research, along with researchers concerned with the effect of the integration of black schools into the KHSAA in the s, and the effect of the school consolidation movement in the s and s on small rural high schools.
Significant information on the development decline, and resurgence of girl's athletic competition is adequately chronicled in the records. Statistical information concerning scores and best records abound in the materials. Unfortunately, however, many films of previous KHSAA sponsored championship events, especially Boy's basketball tournament games, have been either lost or destroyed.
In addition, the photograph collection is very sparse. The majority of the processing of the records and all of the typing of the inventory, box labels, and other items was performed by student assistants assigned to the Archives.
Their diligence and promptness in completing this project is deeply appreciated. The Kentucky High School Athletic Association KHSAA was organized in Louisville in Aprilwhen a small group of male educational leaders met by appointment during the annual meeting of the Kentucky Educational Association to discuss the regulation of inter-high school athletic contests.
The writing of a constitution and by-laws was left to the organization's governing body, to be known as the Board of Control. The original board consisted of President Moses E. Ligon, principal of Lexington High School, W.
Sterling and John H. The Board's initial meeting on September 22, established the KHSAA's purpose--to purify athletics and codify basic rules of player eligibility and athletic conduct.
Although the Association's Secretary, John H. Way, in his first letter to high school principals, declared that high schools had long felt the need for the influence of such an association only eighteen schools were sufficiently interested to join it. Enthusiasm for membership in the Association was slow to develop. During the s and s high school sports achieved greater popularity which in turn led to the rapid growth for the KHSAA.
The Association grew in part because it continued to adhere to its original purpose of developing and regulating high school athletics by the adoption of uniform rules of player eligibility and by making the school's principal responsible for their observance. Other contributing factors included the improvement of the status of the coach, and the promotion of boy's and girl's post-season championship tournaments in basketball.
By over schools had joined the Association, and the KHSAA's authority to impose penalties and sanctions against member schools violating rules and regulations had been upheld by the Kentucky Court of Appeals. In addition to determining player eligibility the organization performed many other functions such as determining tournament sites, managing the state high school championships, establishing rules and regulations of competition, controlling game officials sanctioning All-Star and out of state games, resolving scheduling conflicts, investigating player and crowd misconduct, and administering the Player's Protection Fund which paid claims to injured athletes.
Materials are arranged alphabetically by sport and then chronologically with information on the participants, game score, date of event, location information medium, and playing time. The majority of the films and tapes are concerned with the Boy's and Girl's Sweet Sixteen basketball final games and football championship final games.
Unfortunately, the collection is very incomplete. Many of the films, however, have either been lost or destroyed.
In addition, the department has conducted an oral history project, interviewing long time men and women coaches, athletes, and administrators who have been closely associated with the KHSAA and high school sports.

Within this series some information exists concerning the relationship of high school athletes and Kentucky politics, especially the vigorous campaigning by KHSAA President W.
Files are arranged alphabetically by high school and then chronologically within each school. Records exist for around 1, schools and include the years through Most of the earlier records are eligibility lists of basketball teams from member schools.
Many of the lists between and make mention of the women's teams from those years; after this, women's athletics do not reappear until around the mid-6Os. After a slight break in the records during World War II the lists and correspondence resume in the late s.
After the war many new sports start appearing. These lists could be of vital help to those doing genealogical research. Most of the correspondence in this series consists of letters to and from the KHSAA office and the member schools.
