The Big House: Fielding H. Yost and the building of Michigan Stadium
University of Michigan Head Football Coach, Lloyd H. Carr sums it up best, "If you have an interest in the history of college football and especially University of Michigan Football, Dr. Robert Soderstrom has written a well-researched story about Fielding H. Yost, college football in the 1920's and the building of Michigan stadium. I love this book and think you will too." The book spans the years 1922-1927, the period in which Yost conceived and saw through the building of Michigan stadium, while serving as a successful coach. The 368-page, hard cover, begins with the season of 1922 that laid the cornerstone and concludes with the stadium dedication game in 1927 that pit Michigan against its infamous rival, Ohio State. With consideration for historical context, Soderstrom covers the issues facing Mr. Yost including persuading the Michigan Board of Regents to support a new stadium. There are newspaper excerpts, quotes from Yost's files, and photos from the Bentley Historical Library.
