Stein, Julian U., JOPERD--The Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance


Carl A. Troester, Jr., AAHPER Executive Secretary from 1948 until his retirement in 1974, died at home on December 27, 1994. During his 26-year tenure as Executive Secretary, AAHPER grew tremendously at all levels - state, district, and national - attaining an all-time high membership of 52,000 in 1972. During this golden era, additional divisions (as associations at that time were called) were added, including Girls and Women in Sport, Recreation, Dance, and General.

He was a founder, in 1958, of the International Council for Health, Physical Education, and Recreation (ICHPER), today representing more than 145 countries on every continent, and served as its first Secretary General for almost 34 years. He was also Executive Director of the American Council on International Sport (ACIS) for 18 years. Many of his greatest contributions were behind the scenes - attaining UNESCO Group A Status and recognition for ICHPER, establishing the UNESCO program on physical education and sport, developing and disseminating worldwide the UNESCO Charter on Physical Education; conducting numerous significant conferences and projects in conjunction with UNESCO; encouraging both individuals and groups to become increasingly involved in professional activities at national and international levels, and seeing national and worldwide needs and then striving to ensure that appropriate activities were developed and implemented.

Carl Troester contributed to our profession in so many different ways that it is difficult to recount them all - athlete, teacher, professor, coach, administrator, chief executive officer of professional organizations at both national and international levels, writer, and advocate par excellence. He encouraged and cajoled others to better themselves, but most of all he was a friend's friend, a colleague's colleague, and professional's professional. …
