Note
After failed efforts to preserve the Amazon Family Housing as an historic property, the complex was demolished by the University of Oregon in the summer of 1995. The buildings were originally designed by Pietro Belluschi and constructed in 1946 near Vancouver, Washington, as housing for shipbuilders.
