Jonsson Tower (North Quad)

Jonsson Tower is one of four North Quad areas.

History

Jonsson Tower and the Jonsson Campus are named for Margaret Jonsson, wife of J. Erik Jonsson. Founder of Texas Instruments and former mayor of Dallas, J. E. Jonsson played a key role in Skidmore's move from downtown Saratoga Springs to its current location.  While a trustee, he and his wife purchased the Woodlawn Estate and persuaded Skidmore to build an entirely new campus on the park-like location.  Mrs. Jonsson's portrait hangs in the first floor entryway of Jonsson Tower.
