The Reis Tennis Center opened in 1994 and is named in honor of L. Sanford Reis ’29 and Josephine Mills Reis ’29. Information on the Reis family and their many contributions to Cornell is available at the Cornell Chronicle.

Evan Earle, of Cornell Library’s Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections scanned and notated photos of the groundbreaking and dedication ceremonies.

The photographs below are from the collection of Curtis S. Reis, Sanford’s son, and may also be viewed here in .pdf format.
