Building History: The University of Washington honored a generous benefactor and alumnus (B.A., 1949, J.D., 1950) William Henry Gates, Sr., (1925- ), naming this new law school building for him in 2003. Gates's son, William (Bill) Gates, Jr., (1955- ) co-founded Microsoft Corporation in 1976, and subsequently became the world's richest man. He and his father have become important philanthropists for the university and the world. Kohn Pederson Fox, the New York architects who designed the 55-story Washington Mutual Tower (1988) in Seattle, served as Principal Architects for William H. Gates, Sr., Hall, in association with Mahlum and Nordfors McKinley Gordon, Architects of Seattle, (later known as Mahlum Architects).
