The groundbreaking for Royal Brougham Pavilion, held in 1951.
The groundbreaking for Royal Brougham Pavilion, held in 1951, was just the beginning for the decades of Seattle Pacific students who have competed, cheered, worked, worshiped, and played inside.
Brent Ruby ’89 recalls it as “the building where I discovered my calling into the field of exercise physiology.” He adds, “I lifted millions of pounds of weights here and took hundreds of post-practice showers here before heading to dinner at Gwinn.”
Congratulations to our contest winner, Meredith Youngren Flaming ’67!
