Long Description:
The administration building in the early photo burned in 1906 and was replaced by a new Gothic style Administration Building in 1907-09.

The University of Idaho campus newspaper The Argonaut carried an article about various campus traditions including the Hello Walk. This article touches on some of the history of the Spanish American War Memorial that graces the Olmsted designed Administration Lawn.

"More than just the names and the events, there are traditions built into the campus grounds....

Hello Walk is one of the best-known and traveled pathways on the Idaho campus. But more than being surrounded by trees and grass, it navigates through a rich history of statues, landmarks and traditions. It includes Presidential Grove, where historical figures, such as Teddy Roosevelt and his wife, planted trees; the Spanish War memorial statute who had his hands cut off but reconstructed by a handless sculptor and Administration Lawn that was designed by the same brothers who designed Central Park in New York City."
