The collection consists of materials relating to the construction of San Diego Stadium, dating from 1965-67. It includes legal
documents, contracts, progress reports, and photographs.
In the early 1960s, local sportswriter Jack Murphy, the brother of New York Mets broadcaster Bob Murphy, began working to
build support for a stadium for San Diego. Construction began in December 1965, after a $27 million bond was passed in November
of that year to fund the project. When completed, the facility was named San Diego Stadium.
