Jessie and John Danz Lectures

In 1961, Mr. John Danz, a Seattle pioneer, and his wife, Jessie Danz, made a substantial gift to the University of Washington to establish a perpetual fund to provide income to be used to bring to the University of Washington each year "distinguished scholars of national and international reputation who have concerned themselves with the impact of science and philosophy on man's perception of a rational universe." Through these books, Jessie and John Danz lecturers speak to the people and scholars of the world, as they have spoken to audiences at the University of Washington and in the Pacific Northwest Community.
