I would guess that the old Angell Field track was equal quadrant; perhaps it was even tighter. The track in the old Stanford Stadium might have been what we now know as IAAF standard, as is the present (post-1996) synthetic Cobb Track at Angell Field. Former Indians/Cardinal runners might know more.
