Seattle World's Fair memories run deep for WWU track coach Bill Roe
The Bellingham Herald
Western Washington University coach Bill Roe has won national honors for his work coaching, organizing and promoting track and field. So what does he display in his living room? If you guessed track photos and trophies, guess again. Roe's living room pays homage to three other important things in his life: movies, of which he has an extensive collection; New Zealand, a country he loves and has visited many times; and the Seattle World's Fair, the event that grabbed his soul a half-century ago and hasn't loosened its grip yet.
