Kalamazoo College Stowe Stadium Dedication, 1946
MetadataShow full item record
Dedication ceremonies for Stowe Tennis Stadium at Kalamazoo College, August 3, 1946. The new facilities, built at a cost of about $50,000, included nine tournament-quality clay courts and a stadium. Although the College's five old courts had been resurfaced in 1941, they still did not prove adequate to handle the interest in the sport that was generated under the leadership of Dr. Allen Stowe. Stowe, who graduated from Kalamazoo College in 1920 and returned in 1928 as a professor of Chemistry, also served as tennis coach. Dr. Stowe played a significant role in the 1943 relocation of the National Junior and Boys' Tennis Championships (now USTA Boys' Nationals) to the College. This view is to the southwest. The Gazette photographer is not identified.
