University of Washington's Nuclear Reactor Building (More Hall Annex)



See the vision for More Hall Annex, The WAND Center


"From April 1961 to June 1988, the UW operated a 100-kilowatt Argonaut research reactor, one of about 10 built for research universities in the United States. Designed at the Argonne National Laboratory near Chicago in the late 1950s and installed with funds from federal grants, the Argonaut reactor was at the center of the UW's nuclear engineering department, an elite graduate-level program, for nearly 30 years." The Daily 2007


More Hall Annex was officially listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Chris Moore, field director for the Washington Trust, had this statement about the Nuclear Reactor Building's listing: "The listing of the University of Washington's Nuclear Reactor Building in the National Register of Historic Places adds an exclamation point to the structure's historical significance and further solidifies Seattle's role as home to a rich collection of noteworthy resources from the recent past. The Washington Trust for Historic Preservation is very pleased to see the Nuclear Reactor Building acknowledged with this honor."
