University of Houston Libraries Exhibits

A History of Robertson Stadium

Between its opening in 1942 as Public School Stadium and its demolition in fall of 2012, Robertson Stadium (also known as Jeppesen Stadium) has been home to high school football, UH football, and the Houston Oilers as well as the Houston Dynamo soccer club. Additionally, some of the biggest names in rock played Robertson during the 1970s and 1980s.

UH Libraries Special Collections would like to thank UH Facilities Planning & Construction, the UH Athletics Department, and Bruce Kessler of RockinHouston.com. Without their contributions, this exhibit would not have been possible.
