Who's Counting?

August 31, 2005

Changes abound at the west end of campus this summer. I'll be highlighting many of them in the coming days and weeks. On the personnel and leadership front, none is more significant than the arrival of Bernard Muir as Director of Athletics. I read somewhere that he is the tenth AD in Georgetown history. I guess that depends on whom you count as a previous AD.

A little background: competitive sports on the Hilltop began in the late 1860's as playground games grew into organized intramural competition. These games subsequently grew into competition by intramural all-stars against similar teams from neighboring schools. The organization of such teams, practices, and games was strictly a student-run endeavor, subject to overall school regulations administered by a Jesuit, usually the Dean of Discipline, later called the Dean of Men and today, the Dean of Students. The administration of the athletic teams by student managers continued through the 1914 academic year when the University hired a Graduate Manager to assume athletic director duties, alumnus Charles Cox. In subsequent years when the Graduate Manager or Athletic Director position was not filled, the Dean of Men or a Jesuit faculty supervisor assumed administrative responsibilities.
