Is Burroughs St. named after the same family as the Burroughs Adding Machine company?

I assume that the street is named after the company, not the family. The Burroughs Adding Machine Company was located at 6071 Second Ave. at Burroughs St., two blocks west of the Cass and Burroughs site.

One and the same. Didn't some of the old Burroughs buildings become part of the WSU annexes on 2nd?

And it should be mentioned that this site is the original Graphic Arts Building.

The gap in the front at the top of the facade is a missing set of terracotta lion heads. They were skillfully recreated by the rennovators.
