Hubert Locke

Hubert Gaylord Locke was a longtime professor and administrator at the University of Washington, where he served for five years as dean of the School of Public Affairs.

Locke was a moral leader, an author, a Holocaust scholar, and an authority on police and urban affairs. He was described as “a sort of civic-wise-man-in-residence, counseling patience and understanding in politicians and offering a voice of reason on contentious issues from race relations to growth management” (The Seattle Times, July 9, 1995).

As dean of the School of Public Affairs he was praised by University of Washington President William Gerberding for serving through financially perilous times while maintaining excellence for the program.
