Building Notes

According to architect and historian Ellen F.C. Mirro, "The Seattle engineering firm of Skilling, Worthington, Helle, and Jackson designed Ingraham High School in 1958, with Helge J. Helle signing the drawings." (Email from Ms. Mirro to the author, 09/23/2016. Thank you to her for this information.)

Seattle Public School wanted to cut down 63 trees from the Ingraham High School property in 2008, but was challenged in court by a group called Save Our Trees; this group won in court, and the Seattle schools were barred from removing the trees in order to build a school addition. The proposed alterations to Ingraham were to cost $20 million.
