George P. "Jiggs" Dahlberg
The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics’ Athletic Team Record, also known as the “Red Book,” was created and maintained by University of Montana coach George P. “Jiggs” Dahlberg. The book provides in-depth information about the University of Montana’s intercollegiate athletes (all male) between 1897 and 1980. Dahlberg drew information from the Missoulian, Kaimin and other sources for seasons prior to his arrival at UM in 1937, and on his own knowledge from 1937 to 1980. He documented the coaches (including student assistants), the players and their statistics (including height, weight, home town, and records), team schedules and stats, and season summaries for football, basketball, golf, swimming, tennis, wrestling and track and field. He commented on athletic policies, noted who won conference awards, who set individual, game and team records, and recorded other “interesting information” (such as that UM received $25,000 for football bleachers in 1937-1938.)
