President Obama became the first sitting president since John F. Kennedy in 1961 to come to the University of Washington when he stopped by Hec Edmundson Pavilion on Oct. 21 to rally support for U.S. Sen. Patty Murray. Ten thousand people packed the arena, with another 3,000 taking in the proceedings on TV in Husky Stadium. Obama also met with the women’s cross country and women’s volleyball teams. Rental of the facility and other associated costs were paid by Sen. Murray’s campaign. President Teddy Roosevelt also visited the UW in 1911.
