Student Housing is currently reviewing the buildings as potential LEED projects, using the Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance rating system. The LEED green building certification program promotes a whole building sustainability approach by recognizing performance in five areas: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. Sustainable features in Gilmore include:

Building Namesake

John Washington GilmoreJohn Washington Gilmore
Born: 1872
Deceased: 1942

John Washington Gilmore was a professor of Agronomy at UC Davis from 1913 until his death. Born in Arkansas, John Gilmore graduated from Cornell University in 1898. His first position was as assistant director of the Provincial Agricultural College at Wuchang, China. He served for three years as an adviser and teacher in India, Hawaii, and the Philippines. During his travels he lived close to the people, traveling by bicycle whenever possible. In 1903 he joined the staff at Cornell and in 1906 he received his M.S.A. After spending a year at Pennsylvania State College, he returned to Honolulu and organized the College of Hawaii, serving as its first president. In 1913 John Gilmore joined the Davis faculty. East of the campus, he built a house with large living rooms, planned as a gathering place for students. His encouragement of foreign students led to the formation of the International Club. While at Davis, Gilmore continued to work with foreign governments and educational institutions in Chile, Santo Domingo, and Mexico. In recognition of his service, he received medals at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition in 1904 and the Panama Pacific Exposition in 1915. Professor Gilmore was remembered by Knowles Ryerson as a kind man to whom students could go for guidance and assistance. He wanted to know the students and was never too busy to help another person.
