AUGUST 2015 | Washington Athletic Club Magazine | 37 THE CRYSTAL BALLROOM This photo of the old Birch Room, now the Crystal Ballroom, was taken in December 1930 during the WAC's grand opening celebrations. At the time, the WAC Clubhouse was the third-tallest building in Seattle, behind only Smith Tower and the Northern Life Tower. Opening celebrations ran for three nights and included this black-tie member-only dinner. R.C. "Torchy" Torrance, an original member of the Board of Governors, is seated directly above the number 7.
