These two pages come out of the expanded 1921 edition of the athletic department’s “R Book.” I’m particularly struck by the rosy expectations for even better facilities in the near future, which turned out to be largely unwarranted. The Great Depression messed up a lot of plans on this campus.
I’m also interested in the way the word “equipment” is used here to describe what today we would call “facilities.” “Equipment” now makes one think of racks of basketballs or baseball bats or the like. I’ve noticed this before in the discussions in the General Announcements about the various laboratories on campus, which are also referred to as equipment. I wonder when this meaning shifted.
More of those second-floor doors…
