Norton Clapp Theatre

In 1998, the Inside Theatre in Jones Hall was renamed Norton Clapp Theatre by the Board of Trustees to commemorate Norton Clapp's dedicated service to the university.  Mr. Clapp (1906-1995) was chairman of the Laird Norton Company and president and chairman of Weyerhaeuser Company. He served the University of Puget Sound as a trustee for 62 years (1933-1995), including 19 years as chair of the board. This 62-year term is the longest of any trustee in the university's history and included work with four university presidents.
