In November 2022, the WSU Regents voted to rename the President’s residence on the Pullman campus in honor of Professor Ida Lou Anderson. Please join Trevor Bond and Phil Gruen for an illustrated presentation on the life of a remarkable Washington State College faculty member and graduate of Colfax High School who trained and inspired a generation of broadcasters including Edward R. Murrow. The panelists will provide an overview of Ida Lou Anderson’s life and an architectural history of the Anderson House.
