Extractions: and Olympic History Future spot for architect's drawing! The IISOH effectively has two divisions the Library and the Museum. The Board of Directors are seeking benefactor(s) to endow each division with a $25 million donation. An endowment will also be sought for the theatre in the amount of $25 million. The benefactor(s) will then be offered the opportunity to name the Library, Museum or theatre, subject to the final approval of the Board of Directors. Our plans are to construct facilities on a campus approximately 300 acres in size. This will allow us have room for expansion in the decades to come as we increase the endowment and add sports facilities to the educational program. Sports fields are desirable in order to teach through participation and play. If we have a baseball field we can teach the history of baseball by playing a game using 1860 rules for 3 innings, then playing by modern rules for 3 innings. In the basement of the Museum we could have a bowling alley from the 1800's where the pins have to be set by hand, and right next to it have a modern bowling alley that is fully automated. Our visitors can go bowling either way. Consider the possibilities for each and every sport this means a lot of space is needed.
Extractions: Additional subjects may be added at any time by the Board of Directors or suggested by Benefactors. Subjects in BOLD are on the program of the Modern Olympic Games and are the primary areas of interest in seeking endowments.

Extractions: Bowling has a long and rich history, and today is one of the most popular sports in the world. A British anthropologist, Sir Flinders Petrie, discovered in the 1930's a collection of objects in a child's grave in Egypt that appeared to him to be used for a crude form of bowling. If he was correct, then bowling traces its ancestry to 3200 BC. A German historian, William Pehle, asserted that bowling began in his country about 300 AD. There is substantial evidence that a form of bowling was in vogue in England in 1366, when King Edward III allegedly outlawed it to keep his troops focused on archery practice. And it is almost certain that bowling was popular during the reign of Henry VIII. By this time, too, there were many variations of "pin" games, and also of games where a ball was thrown at objects other than pins. This would seem to imply that the games had developed over time, from an earlier period. One of the most eccentric games is still found in Edinburgh. The player swings a fingerless ball between his legs and heaves it at the pins. In doing so, he "flops" onto the lane on his stomach. There were and still are many variations of ninepins in Western Europe. Likely related are the Italian bocce, the French petanque, and British lawn bowling. Undoubtedly, the English, Dutch and German settlers all imported their own variations of bowling to America. The earliest mention of it in serious American literature is by Washington Irving, when Rip Van Winkle awakens to the sound of "crashing ninepins". The first permanent American bowling location probably was for lawn bowling, in New York's Battery area. Now the heart of the financial district, New Yorkers still call the small plot Bowling Green.

Extractions: History of the sport It might have all the signs of a modern sport, but the roots of bowling as a sport are lost in the mists of time. years ago, ancient Egyptians played a game similar to bowling, and in the Palaeolithic Age, humans used to roll stones to try to hit lamb bones fixed in the ground. years ago in Germany, people used to roll stone balls along the ground to try to hit an effigy of the devil. Whoever was successful was considered to be a good man. A failure would brand the player as a criminal, and he would be sent to jail for a few days. Bowling was very popular in most countries in the 17th century. Jan STEEN, the Dutch painter, painted a scene representing a bowling game. At the time, the game was called "Skittles", and nine pins were used instead of the ten we have today. Gambling-mania was widespread at the time, and bowling was certainly no exception to the trend. Large sums were gambled on the outcome of games of Skittles leading to the wrath of most governments of the time. As a result, James I, King of England, banned bowling in 1618. Most governments, with that of the United States leading the way followed his example shortly afterwards.
