Description:
North Carolina State University track team member and ACC champion Stuart Corn pole vaulting at track field behind Reynolds Coliseum. Stuart held the pole vault record for the University for his 15 feet 2 inch jump. As a junior, Stuart Corn won the Atlantic Coast Conference pole vault title with a vault of 14 feet 6 inches. Corn, "one of the most versatile track performers the Wolfpack has ever had," according to a 1964 NC sports information press release, held the University record in pole vault (15 feet 2 inches) and the high jump mark (6 feet 4-1/4 inches). Corn represented NC State University at the 44th annual NCAA Track and Field Championships in Berkeley, California, in June of 1964.

General note:
Completed in 1949, the building with seating for 14,000 people is named after William Neal Reynolds, president of the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company founded by his brother. Construction of Reynolds Coliseum was originally proposed by David Clark after 5,000 people from all over North Carolina were rained out of a Farmers' Week meeting in 1940. The coliseum was home to the basketball team for nearly 50 years, including two NCAA champion teams. Reynolds Coliseum also provides a venue for large university and city events. Today it houses several NC State athletic teams, as well as NC State's ROTC units. The men’s basketball team moved to the RBC Center in 2000.
