Building History

Édouard Frère Champney (1874-1929), a Beaux-Arts-trained designer with a long professional pedigree, assisted Abraham Horace Albertson (1872-1964) on an initial, 1922 scheme for the Women's University Club in Seattle, WA. Shorn of Champney's elegant ornamentation, Albertson, Wilson and Richardson, Architects, carried out the as-built design. An article in the Seattle Star of 10/30/1922, said of the building: "December 1st is the date set for the opening of the Women's University club at Sixth ave. and Spring st. The new club headquarters, equipped and furnished with the most modern conveniences, includes all things from a reception hall and auditorium to a kitchen. The entire second floor is devoted to bedrooms." (See "Women's University Club Ready Dec. 1," Seattle Star, 10/30/1922, p. 14.)
