Gates Hall's most impressive room is named after two of the law school's most distinguished alumni. In the U.S. Senate for decades, Warren G. Magnuson was the central force in myriad acts on environmental protection, health care, medical education and research. A champion of social programs and strong national defense, Henry M. Jackson was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1952, serving 30 years until his death in 1983.
