How an American "Gentle Man's" Game Became a Worldwide Power Sport: A History of Volleyball 1895-1947
My senior thesis on the early history of volleyball. Written as part of my Princeton History B.A. in 2015. Available for free to download, read, and share. Just enter $0 as the price.
One of the graders of my thesis at Princeton notoriously disliked athletes writing about their sports. But he loved this paper and even said with some edits and formatting it could appear in The New Yorker.
I hope you learn something and enjoy the story. If you are also a sports historian, researcher, or journalist, please don't hesitate to reach out.
You can buy and download a copy of my new book about MY volleyball journey and career, 11 Ways to Get an Edge, here.
If you are anyone who reads it and learns something from my thesis or the book also please don't hesitate to reach out :)
