Field House Museum

Field House Museum

is Middlebury’s Virtual Sports Museum. The exhibits on this site were generated by students in a Winter 2013 course, “Designing a Field House Museum,” in collaboration with faculty, archivists, athletic administrators, and representatives of Sasaki Associates, the architectural firm charged with designing the new Field House. Each exhibit offers a thematic approach to Middlebury sports history. A separate exhibit features interviews with Middlebury coaches and administrators. Finally, we have created a timeline of Middlebury athletics.  Please feel free to comment on any of the exhibits, or contact us directly.

CCSRE Life Stories Project: Missy Foote

Learn more about the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity  at Middlebury College.

“Life Stories of Middlebury College” is a multi-phase initiative intended to gather people’s experiences while at the college, particularly reflections that highlight issues of diversity. In her interview, Missy Foote talks about crafting homemade lacrosse sticks for her team in Chester, VT, the early days of Title IX implementation and women’s athletics, having to share the women’s locker room with opposing teams, how sports are defined by race, the tug between academics and athletics, the difficulty of recruiting, how technology is changing sports, the pleasures of living in Middlebury, and her philosophy of coaching.
