Drs. Terry and Jan Todd, former champion powerlifters and founders/co-directors of the Stark Center for PhysicalCulture, state:
“The Stark Center, which is part of the Kinesiology and Health Education department, is an official University of Texas Research Center, as well as being one of only two Olympic Research Centers in the Americas. As such, the Center has an interest in all sports and especially, in training for sports and in drug-free sport. With approximately 35,000 volumes, 2200 magazine/journal titles, 100,000 photographs, and extensive holdings in such areas as correspondence, films, alternative medicine, videos, and artifacts, the Stark Center is the largest such collection in the world. We are very excited about this important alliance”. Drs Terry and Jan Todd are also on the Advisory Board for the International Sports Hall of Fame.
