Documentary evidence of athletics is first found in account books from 1798, which record the arrival of two fencing masters. Our first capital expenditure for athletics seems to have come in 1814 when a handball court was constructed, at a cost of $800, close to what is now the main entrance of the Healy Building. Team sports did not emerge until after the Civil War.
