A Walk in Our ‘Shoe: 100 Years of Ohio Stadium

Over the past 100 years, thousands of fans have cheered The Ohio State University Buckeyes to victory in Ohio Stadium, affectionately known as the ‘Shoe. TBDBITL has brought audiences to their feet for Script Ohio, and families and friends have joyfully watched as their students became graduates in that same stadium. A Walk in Our ‘Shoe: 100 Years of Ohio Stadium celebrates this history of the Horseshoe. On view in the Thompson Library Gallery, the exhibit is presented by University Archives, and highlights include football uniforms and gear from the 1920s and 1930s, the dedication game day program from 1922, a reconstructed Fan Cave, Jim Tressel’s play calling sheets, and a Lego Ohio Stadium constructed by OSU Professor Paul Janssen 

Our alumni club, along with the Delaware and Fairfield County clubs, have arranged for a guided tour of this special exhibit at the Main Library on Saturday, February 4 at 1:30 pm.

There is no cost to attend but you must pre-register.  Email your name, phone number, and the number of attendees you’re bringing to  OSUAlumniFranklinCounty@yahoo.com.

A confirmation will be sent with parking instructions and other details in late January.  For more information, email us or call Leyla at 614-847-9132.
