What a beautiful time of the year for basketball. The Kansas Jayhawks had their One Shining Moment, the NBA Playoff bracket will be underway soon, and the weather outside is getting nice enough around the country to ditch the snow boots and lace up the sneaks. Using these happenings as inspiration, I decided to take a dive through the National Archives Catalog to see what kinds of cool basketball related images I could unearth. From Australia to Washington, D.C., and from WACs to Shaq, the variety of basketball related holdings here in the Still Picture Branch runs deeper than a Steph Curry 3.
For those interested in doing their own basketball related research in the National Archives Catalog, this link is a great place to get started. Please also take a look at this blog by one of my colleagues which also covers basketball (and hockey too!).
