This paper describes the concreting of the Ross-Ade Stadium at Purdue University which is named after David E. Ross, of the class of 1893, now trustee of Purdue University, and George Ade, of the class of 1887. The Osborn Engineering Co. of Clevland, Ohio, designed the stadium and was represented by an inspector. An engineering committee of the university advised the authorities. The contractor was A.E. Kemmer, member of the American Concrete Institute, a graduate of Purdue University in the class of 1902.
