Brewster Denny

Brewster Denny, the great-grandson of one of Seattle’s founding families, a former staff member for U.S. Senator Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson, and a University of Washington alumnus served as the school’s first director and dean.

The great-grandson of Arthur and Mary Denny, founders of Seattle and the University of Washington, Denny’s commitment to public service was unwavering. Denny identified the purpose for offering degrees in public administration: “To improve the quality of the conduct of the public’s business by the preparation of mature, aware, committed, and intellectually well-equipped men and women for public service at all levels of government.”

Brewster Denny passed away in 2013 at age 88.
