Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of a copy of The South Carolina Historical Magazine for April 2001 which contains an article titled “Setting The Mark : Lucile Godbold and The First International Track Meet For Women” by Jane P. Tuttle. The article was written about the life and athletic career of Lucile Ellerbe “Ludy” Godbold (1900-1981) who was a 1919 and 1920 graduate of Winthrop College. Ludy won a gold medal in the shot put, a bronze in the javelin throw, and finished fourth in the 300 meter and 1000 meter race at the first International Track Meet for Women in Paris in 1922. This meet is considered the forerunner of women’s Olympic competition. Her Gold medal winning throw in the shot put broke the world record. She taught at Columbia College in Columbia, South Carolina for 58 years and was the first woman elected to the South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame in 1961.
