Dedication Of Palmer Stadium


 

Though the first game was actually played against Dartmouth three weeks earlier, this was the formal dedication of Palmer Memorial Stadium. According to the Daily Princetonian's 2004 series of articles on Princeton's stadiums, "Upon turning the stadium over to the Trustees of Princeton University, Palmer noted that his only hope was that the teams playing within the walls of the stadium would be sure to play fair and preserve the glory and honor of Princeton University."
