Jensen, who passed away this year at the age of 89, took this shot probably in the 1950′s. This large open square on the U.W. campus next to Suzzallo Library was, of course, excavated and paved with the red brick in 1969.

  1. I am guessing then, the walkways in this picture were from the first Worlds Fair held in Seattle?

  2. Mike, what an amazing thought. I wonder if that’s true. I see that this photo predates the famed cherry trees up in the quad along the central pathway, which surprises me. I’d thought they were there forever. This scene takes me back to my wasted youth. Some of my most creative and ebullient hackey twirls were cast on the very spot where the red-sweatered, white-skirted individual is walking in the foreground, while I should have been inside Kane Hall listening to Prof. Kingsbury discussing “isness” and “reciprocity of line” in Art History 101. (My loss, but there we are.)

    Matt, I think the quad with the cherry trees is north of the one that is shown in the center of the picture, which looks east between the Music and Art buildings. The
    area in front of Suzzallo Library still looked like the picture when I attended the UW in the late 60s. I have finally made my peace with Red Square, but it was wonderful having all that lawn rolling down toward the library and the Ad Building in the springtime.

  4. Jim, I must insist. The quad is quite visible here, across the road and up the stairs, at the foot of which a white-clad individual can be seen. There is a couple — he in dark shirt and stylish khakis, she all in white — and two other darker figures behind him further along the central path, and all four of these folks are traversing the southern half of the quad’s central pathway.

    I can understand your resistance to Red Square, how you missed the grass. I felt that way about the grass that was beHIND Suzallo (to the East), which came out to accomodate some construction just before I graduated.

    A bit of research shows that the famous Quad cherry tress were planted in 1964.

    Ah, good ol’ Suzzallo. I had a couple of student jobs there during my days at the “U” in the early 80s. One was visually inspecting the backpacks, purses, briefcases, etc. of everyone leaving the library for any books or other materials not properly checked out. Apparently it cost less to hire minimum-wage student workers than to install theft-detection devices in the library’s millions of volumes (I believe they did install such a system after I graduated, possibly coinciding with the addition of the Allen Library to Suzzallo). Many people (usually vistors just sight-seeing) were often indignant about this “invasion of privacy”; Women in particular – “How DARE you want to peer into a ladies’ purse as if she were a common thief!”

  7. An outburst like that today would get that tourista a boot on her neck and a pat-down by our friends at Homeland Insecurity. (To quote Roger Daltry: “I didn’t mean that! I just said it!”)

    The cherry trees were transplanted in 1964. They originally grew on what is now the approach to the 520 bridge.

    Of course everyone knows there is a huge parking garage underneath all this.
