Three original Silver Gelatin Photographs, all measuring approximately 4.25 by 2.5 inches, from the Ohio Stadium Dedication Game played between Ohio State and Michigan on October 21, 2022.  These photographs were cut out of a Michigan scrapbook, each with the final score written on them in vintage black fountain pen.  Also included is a tag that states, "I've Helped to send the BAND to Columbus."

After winning their first games at their new home, Ohio State hosted archrival Michigan for the ceremonial dedication game. Over 72,000 were on hand but perhaps the focus was too much on the stadium and not the play on the field. Michigan shutout the Buckeyes, 19-0.

Ohio Stadium has turned into one of the greatest venues in college football history. Over 12,000 individuals helped raise over one million dollars towards the $1.5M project.  On this Saturday in 1922, it was a cause for celebration as the dream was achieved.  As The Lantern put it, "All walks of life were represented when leaders came from far and near to pay their respects to The Ohio State University's new athletic plant."
