Harvard's Murr Center opened in May of 1998. Housing state-of-the-art facilities for several programs, it also services the entire intercollegiate program as the centrally-located home for the department's administration. The dedication plaque in the front lobby reads "Michael C. Murr '73, MBA '75, Longtime friend of Harvard, whose vision and generosity offer new generations of Harvard men and women the opportunity to realize their athletic potential."
The showpiece of the Murr Center is its Lee Family Hall of Athletic History. Along the walls are themed panels highlighting the Crimson's long and rich athletic tradition, and there are also free-standing displays of the proud tradition of the nation's oldest - and largest - Division I athletic program. A mecca of Harvard athletic history, the facility hosts team meetings, recruiting functions and numerous alumni and networking events. This space is available to be rented for functions or events and is also open to the public during normal business hours.
