Last issue, we asked you to weigh in on who you thought should have made our list of 100 fascinating, influential and famous living UW alumni. Here's a sampling of people we did—and didn't—neglect to mention.
- Bruce Lee: A great suggestion, but Lee is neither an alumnus nor living, although he studied at the UW from ’61 to ’64.
Also on the list of people whose death made them ineligible: broadcaster Chet Huntley, ’42, photographer Imogen Cunningham, ’07, and astronaut Scott Crossfield, ’49, ’50.
- Donald W. Baker, ’60: Creator of Doppler ultrasound, which has had a profound impact on human health.
- Daniel Hinkley, ’85: The author, plant collector and lecturer has received many horticulture awards and has been a consultant for horticulture programs on PBS and Martha Stewart Television.
- Lhakpa Sherpa, ’99: The co-director of the Himalayan Program for The Mountain Institute is the first person from the Sherpa community to receive a doctorate.
