Historical Information

Lambert Fieldhouse was originally called the Fieldhouse and Gymnasium for Men when it was built in 1937 as a Public Works Administration Project. It housed the offices of the Division of Physical Education for Men, training rooms, locker and shower rooms, classrooms, several small gymnasiums, a large gymnasium, an Olympic-size swimming pool with complete water conditioning equipment, and a basketball court with seating for 8,500 people. The Fieldhouse was renamed in honor of Coach Ward "Piggy" Lambert in 1971.
