From Where the Washingtonians Lived, copyright 1969, text by Lucile McDonald, pg 171.

"Presidents of the University of Washington have their official residence in Hillcrest, the mansion at 808 36th Avenue E., Seattle, built in 1906 by Mr. & Mrs. Edwin Gardner Ames and her parents, . . . The Ames had no children, so made the University their beneficiary and offered the house as residence for the president."
