The Battle Creek Normal School of Physical Education was founded in about 1908 as part of the complex of training schools and colleges associated with Dr. John Harvey Kellogg's sanitarium. This complex included medical training for doctors, nurses, dieticians, and physical therapists as well as the school to train physical education teachers. The all-women's school, organized by Dr. Kellogg, emphasized a program of vigorous outdoor activities. It was one of about two dozen schools in the nation that specifically focused on a physical education curriculum.
