“A sports stadium was constructed at the Norfolk Division in 1936. The stadium cost approximately $300,000; money was appropriated through municipal funds and from the Virginia Emergency Relief Administration and the Works Progress Administration (WPA).
During the summers, the stadium and a swimming pool in the Administration Building were used as a temporary summer camp for approximately 125 Norfolk boys and girls.
…The stadium continues to serve as a home to ODU’s field hockey and lacrosse teams.” (http://www.lib.odu.edu)
