Cleveland State University's pool was the first-ever pool designed by the nascent Counsilman-Hunsaker firm (then known as Counsilman and Associates).
An excerpt from Joe Hunsaker's unpublished memoirs discusses the Cleveland State University project:
"Several months later [after the firm incorporated] "Doc" [Counsilman] called [Joe Hunsaker] and said he had been contacted by Bob Busby, the swim coach and athletic director at Cleveland State University, the City campus which was being developed with federal Urban Renewal funds, and the school needed help in designing a 50m x 25 yd. pool with a ten-meter diving tower. Doc told Busby that, personally, he was committed at the time, but he would send his partner, Joe Hunsaker, who would meet with him and his associates at the University. I did, and an outstanding and unique super-pool was created two years later, which hosted the NCAA National Championships and the US National Swimming Championships, most of the years from the mid-70’s through the mid-80’s."
