SHEFFIELD:
Sheffield Area Athletes, c1906-1920 by Glenn Piper

This list is from 3 main sources.
Athletic programmes give a complete list of all those intending to take part in the said events. Like any sports programme things may have changed on the day through injury, illness or other circumstances. They only note an athletes name and club, or his town which I presume would be where he lives.
The second source is local newspaper reports which may have a brief report of the events and a list of good performances. The ones I have seen so far name winners of the heats and usually the first 3 in the finals. "The Green Un" is a sports paper published in Sheffield and Sheffield Local Studies Library has microfilm copies of this, but does not appear to have any separate material on Sheffield United Harriers.
The third source is the annual "Athletics News Directory" that gives a review of the previous years athletics(mainly track and field) and lists names and addresses of athletes, region by region.
The list is all men and I would guess that most athletes would be in the age range 18-35. The officials might, of course, be older.
This data comes from partial copies of programmes in my possession and some local newspaper reports. I looked at copies of the Athletics News Directory in the British Library.

Please note this is all the information I have but any further information about athletics in this period from programmes, newspapers, or memories etc., or copies of photos would be most welcome.

Apologies for lack of upper case letters in the database.I am slowly working on changing this and will update the page as soon as possible.

There is a copy of a Sheffield United Harriers and Salford AC members 1906 in Peter Harveys book "Sheffield."
Other clubs may have published histories. See T. James "bibliography of athletic club histories"1997.I remember there are histories of Wakefield District Harriers, Rotherham Harriers, and Hallamshire Harriers.
