The second James Barber Indoor Track and Field Invitational meet honors former Southern Connecticut State University athlete and coach James Barber.

James Barber was inducted into the Southern Connecticut State University Hall of Fame in 2007 from the class of '64 with many accolades collected as a guard and Most Valuable Player for the Owls' football team in 1964. He also captained the track and field team that year, and he held records in the 120-yard high hurdles, and the 300- and 440-yard intermediate hurdles. He continued at SCSU as an assistant football and track coach. In 1983, he was named head coach of the Southern women's indoor and outdoor track teams. Internationally, he also served as head coach of the USA Team for the IAAF World Cup Meet in 2002, head coach of the USA Team at the World Indoor Championships. At the U.S. Olympic Festivals, he was an assistant coach in 1991 and head coach in 1994. He helped to found the United States Track Coaches Association and was named the USTCA's Indoor Regional Coach of the Year in 2002. He also received the 2000 Service Award for Colleges and Universities from the United States Women's Coaches Track Association.

Coach Barber also served the New Haven community when he and two of his athletes, Dianne Wright and Rachel Hamlet, founded the New Haven Age Group Track Club (NHAGTC) in 1975. The club continues to be Greater New Haven's premier youth track club that has introduced youth and their families to the sport of track and field as a means of physical fitness and healthy competition.

James Barber is currently employed by Southern Connecticut State University where he serves as the Director of  Community Engagement in the Division of Institutional Advancement.
