Softcover. Quarto. 68pp. Illustrated from photographs. Printed wrappers. Dated “1946/1947” on the front cover, with proceedings of the thirty-third and thirty-fourth annual meetings. This copy lacks two leaves: (pp.37/38 and 47/48 have been excised), and over half of another leaf (pp.59/60) has been cut away, else very good or better: the articles and proceedings are complete. Staples are rusty, spine is nicked and rubbed. Founded in 1912 on the campus of Hampton Institute in Virginia, the Colored Intercollegiate Athletic Association is the oldest African-American athletic conference in the United States, consisting mostly of historically black colleges and universities on the east coast from Pennsylvania to South Carolina.

Also notable is a foreword by John W. Davis (President, West Virginia State College), and “In Memoriam, Dr. John William Pierce, Participant in Founding of the C. I. A. A.” Scarce.
