US Air Force Academy was a publication that documented and promoted life at the newly opened US Air Force Academy, an elite institution that only sought the best and brightest. The piece featured several pages of photographs of cadets engaged in organized athletics. The Academy also highlighted the rigorous physical training, intramural sports leagues, and competitive intercollegiate athletic program they offered.[^] This publication created the impression that the men who were enrolled in the Air Force Academy were superior physical specimens, and detailed the process through which their bodies were developed and improved. It also showed recruits that they would have the opportunity to prove their own masculinity in the Academy through athletics, as well as the other important parts of the institution.
