GERALD R. FORD AWARD Birch Bayh was honored with the Gerald R. Ford Award by the National Collegiate Athletic Association for his role as the original sponsor and co-author of the landmark Title IX legislation. Passed in 1972, the law mandated equal opportunity for men and women in collegiate sports. Bayh, a former Democratic U.S. senator from Indiana and current Venable partner, shared the honor with John Wooden, the legendary basketball coach of the UCLA Bruins who led the program to 10 national championships. Both men attended Purdue University in Indiana. Named for the nation’s 38th president, the award honors “individuals who have provided significant leadership as an advocate for intercollegiate athletics on a continuous basis over the course of his or her career.” Bayh credited his late wife, Marvella, for inspiring him to work at advancing opportunities for women at the college level. She had been rejected by the University of Virginia in 1951 because of the school’s prevailing “women need not apply” policy.
