Lasting Legacies. By Tom Griffin and John Marmor
Lasting Legacies. By Tom Griffin and John Marmor

The country may be going to war, the stock market is in a tailspin, the state budget is $2 billion in the red, our president left for another university and the Huskies aren't going to the Rose Bowl. What better time to run a list of 101 UW achievements? To celebrate this great university—and mark 95 years of publishing a UW alumni magazine—the editors of Columns have combed our files and mined the collective memories of deans, professors, alumni, librarians and staff to come up with this subjective list of UW "greatest hits."

Though we've worked hard to make sure it is as comprehensive as possible, there's no doubt some major accomplishments have slipped through the cracks.
