The generations gathered at Seattle Pacific College for the groundbreaking of this building, in 1951. They hoped it would become a place where young people could “round out spiritual development and cultural guidance with a program aimed at the development of strong and healthy bodies.”
Can you name the building?
The late Lydia Flesher Green, former missionary to China and longtime nursing administrator, remains very much alive in Response readers’ memories and her name lives on today in the Lydia Green Nursing Program for undergraduates in SPU’s School of Health Sciences. A record number of readers wrote in to identify Nurse Green, including our contest winner, Janet Tucker Jamison ’58.
“She was a great encourager for me as I was preparing for foreign missionary service, a strong promoter, and a spiritual leader,” writes Lois Biddulph Ogan ’56.
