Using the collections of the University of Minnesota Archives, this project will tell the story of Memorial Stadium, from its construction to its demolition. The web site, roughly covering the years 1920-1992, will feature photographs, plans, blueprints, and other historical documentation concerning the stadium. In addition, the site will include video clips, photographs and stories of Gopher football and will encourage fan contributions. The site will also feature non-football related uses of the stadium and highlight the rich presence the stadium brought to the campus.
