Description

The Glenn L Martin Stadium, a landmark since 1940 on the Kansas Wesleyan University campus in Salina, KS will be torn down in the next few weeks to make way for a new stadium. Martin lived on a farm south of Salina as a child and was briefly a student at KWU around the turn of the century - 1900 - later he was a strong supporter of the college. The construction of the stadium was a WPA project. From a college publication in 1940:

The designation of the athletic plant as Glenn L. Martin Field is the university’s way, Mr. Morrow (then KWU president) pointed out, of paying tribute to a man whose leadership in aeronautics is recognized by high government officials, and in the industry as well, and a recognition of Martin’s pioneering in that field.

Seating nearly 1800 persons, with a fine press box available for the press and broadcasting, the stadium overlooks a fine firm turf which has held its own throughout the drubbing to which it was subjected this year. The completion of the rooms for storage space and dressing rooms below the stands is expected before the close of the 1940-1941 school year, and when the dedication ceremonies are held next fall, the structure and field should be at its peak in utility and efficiency.

Glenn L. Martin, now president of the great airplane manufacturing concern which bears his name, located near Baltimore, Md., first began to build gliders in 1907, and in 1908 he built his first airplane factories in America at Santa Ana, California in 1909.
