The Stetson Athletic Field adjoins one of the buildings of the John B. Stetson Company's plant in Philadelphia. It was formally opened May 3, 1913, in the presence of six thousand persons. The stands have a seating capacity of thirty-five hundred. Provision is made for base-ball, tennis, basket ball and other out-door sports.
A striking and impressive scene is the annual gathering of all the employees of the John B. Stetson Company, Philadelphia, in the immense auditorium, for the Christmas celebration. The President of the Company addresses the employees, awards are distributed to everyone, and the Stetson Chorus of one hundred and fifty voices renders appropriate selections.
