Duke Sports Hall of Fame
Although I very dearly love Duke University and love to sing her praises to anyone who will listen to, or read, it, I am becoming very discouraged by working on tips or pages up to an hour only to have my ISPs (and I have used several) or the VT server delete or refuse my input. If anyone else has that problem, please let me know. I worked over an hour on this one.
In the spring of 1975, not too long after my graduation from Duke, I was privileged to attend the initial induction dinner for the Duke Sports Hall of Fame. After that ceremony, the Hall of Fame consisted of six photographs and a painted Hall of Fame Banner. With subsequent inductions and expansion, the Hall now has about 120 members and is housed in a 10,000 sq ft facility within the Schwartz-Butters Complex which is immediately adjacent to the Cameron Indoor Stadium. This relatively new facility contains a theater, audio and video clips, and other exhibits showcasing the people and events who have brought athletic fame to the University in addition to photos of each of the inductees.
Open Monday-Friday from 8 AM to 5 PM.
