I’m not sure these have been posted here before but I was checking old Coog hoops media guides and came across something new-to-me. Thought a few of you old-timers (even older than me LOL) might remember something about this.
These pics are from the 1959/60 Guide and show an ‘Architect’s Model’ of the ‘New’ UH Fieldhouse. Early Hof renderings I guess. Plus a shot of very youthful Guy V
Sorry the pics are so blurry. I’ll see if I can get better ones.
Speaking of the Dome…wast Roy Hofeinze the one that made the Dome happen??? Could it be that he originally wanted it built at UH??? I don’t know, just speculating from a picture dated around 1959-1960.
When I was talking to Guy Lewis’ assistant Harvey Pate a few years ago, he said they used to keep that model of the new arena around to show recruits and they would tell them that it was going to be built. Pate said they showed it to Elvin Hayes and Don Chaney to help get them to come here.
Might not be the best word but it is spelled correctly.
