Sitting US President, Barack H. Obama, the Nation’s 44th President, spoke at the Hec Edmundson Pavilion and Husky Stadium to a combined crowd of 14,000 people. Although the University regularly entertains various VIP’s and dignitaries, this is the first time in 49 years a sitting US President has visited the University of Washington. The last visit was from President John F. Kennedy in November, 1961.
