Lambeau Redevelopment, Green Bay, Wisconsin: Witness Testing of the Emergency Lighting System

A recent Harris poll indicated the Green Bay Packers are "America’s Football Team.” If you’re a sports fan and you hear "Green Bay Packers,” you automatically think of their home, Lambeau Field, and their legendary coach, Vince Lombardi. The Packers have been playing at the same location since September 24, 1957. On that day, the Pack beat the Chicago Bears 21-17 in what was called City Stadium. City Stadium was built at a cost of $960,000. There was only seating on the East and West sides of the stadium and the capacity was 32,500. On September 11, 1965, it was renamed Lambeau Field in honor of co-founder and first coach, Curly Lambeau. Curly and George Calhoun began organizing the team in 1919. Curly’s employer at that time, the Indian Packing Company, put up the money for jerseys and permitted the use of its athletic field for practice. This association gave way for the name "Packers.”
