Sprague, 425 14th Street NE, (LL)

This English Tudor house was built for Charles and Blanche Sprague in 1920 to replace a house that was removed. He was, at the time, publisher of the Oregon Statesman and was elected Governor of the state in 1939 after which he held several political posts and then returned to publishing. The Sprague family lived here for 25 years. In 1956 it was sold to Chi Omega sorority of WU. See earlier photograph of the house, date unknown.
