The Cornell Athletic Hall of Fame was initiated in 1978. It became a reality through the thoughtfulness and generosity of the late Ellis H. Robison '18, whose devotion, advice and financial support to Cornell started as soon as he graduated from the University.
In 2006, the Hall of Fame room moved into Friends Hall, where a touch screen display features biographies and photos of every Hall of Famer. A graphic display of memorabilia and photography of legendary athletes serves as the backdrop for meetings and celebrations in a room fit for its legendary Cornellians.
The Big Red Athletic Hall of Fame honors the achievements of the college's outstanding individual student-athletes, coaches and supporters who have enhanced and reinforced the University’s commitment to athletic excellence.
