The World University Games, an international athletic, educational, and cultural festival, was held in Buffalo, New York in July 1993. It was the first time the games were held in the United States. The Greater Buffalo Athletic Corporation (GBAC) was formed in 1988 to bid for the games for Buffalo, and was awarded to host the games in 1989 by FISU (Federation Internationale du Sport Universitaire). Ronald Stein, a President for University Advancement and Development of SUNY at Buffalo, was an original committee member of GBAC and in charge of the Education and Medical Divisions of the games.
The World University games are the largest summer athletic event held bi-annually since 1923 in non-Olympic years. Usually university athletes compete in 12 different events while the Commission Pour L'Etude du Sport (CESU) and International Sports Higher Education Conference are held to bring together scholars in sport and physical education, and to promote its cultural literacy and exchange.
This collection is arranged in eight series: I. WUGS Board Meetings, II. World University Games General, III. FISU, IV. CESU, V. Medical Committee, VI. Education Division, VII. Goodwill Games 1990, VIII. Sheffield Games 1991.
