Biographical Sketch

An athletic and multi-purpose facility, the United Spirit Arena culminates a two-year building project to showcase Texas Tech's men's basketball, women's basketball and volleyball teams, as well as special events, such as commencement. The arena features more than 15,000 seats, a playing court, a practice court, special event areas and meeting rooms. The facility opened to the public on Friday, October 1, 1999.

The donor of the collection, Don Bundock, was the project representative for the architectural firm of Parkhill, Smith and Cooper, Inc. Bundock and his assistants took most of the digital images and photographs, and he will be turning over the copyright to these images to the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library.

Local photographer, I. G. Holmes, took the monthly aerial photos of the construction, and retains the copyright to those aerial images. Any use of his materials will need to be cleared through him.
