Thanks for sharing the information regarding the U of C facilities. I remember when the Fieldhouse was transformed into the two tier level facility. The old Athletic Hall/A.A. Stagg's old office (I forget the name without looking it up right now) next to it was where the Heisman/history room was. As it has been several years since I visited that, is it still there or did they move it to the new Ratner AC?
It is kind of a neat experience to walk the area of The Regenstein Library where the old stadium stood and envision what it was like in the old days, especially in comparing it to old photographs of games there. I'm also that the University preserved one of the old gates from the original Stagg Field stadium and incorporated that in the new entrance to New Stagg Field when those renovations were done back in the 1980's. A nice touch to preserve a little history for today's teams.
One last comment: When I was co-writing Alma College's Centennial Football History back in 1993-1994, we found in the archives and yearbooks that A.A. Stagg was invited up to Alma to the football team's end-of-the season banquet to give a speech and partake in the dinner in 1902. It was a most interesting read about his visit.
The Heismann Trophy is now in the center of the front lobby of Ratner. Stagg's office is still marked in Bartlett (the old athletic) Hall but the spot is being used. I can't remember what it is for.
