Employment and Administrative Policies
||A bequest from the estates of Maud Walker Ames and of her
husband, Edwin Gardner Ames, established the Walker-Ames Fund of
the University of Washington in 1931. Mr. and Mrs. Ames proposed
that income of the Fund be used to secure for the University
of Washington the scholarly and educational services of the
most distinguished and unusual minds available in this and other
||Nominations for such appointments are presented to the Dean
of the Graduate School for consideration by the Walker-Ames Committee.
Detailed information is contained in Graduate School Memorandum 21.
||A gift to the University of Washington by Mr. John Danz and
his wife, Jessie Danz, established The John Danz Fund in 1961.
In 1970, Mrs. Danz made an additional gift to The John Danz Fund.
The original gift was intended to bring to the campus each year
"distinguished scholars of national and international reputation
who have concerned themselves with the impact of science
and philosophy on man's perspective of a rational universe."
The terms of the gift, however, do not restrict the fund
to this one specific purpose. The terms allow the Board of Regents
wide discretion in the use of the income for those purposes
which will rapidly strengthen and advance the academic program
of the University. Allocations from the Fund support The Jessie and John Danz Lectureship
and Visiting Professorship Program. Appointees are designated
Jessie and John Danz Lecturers or Jessie and John Danz Visiting
||Nominations for appointment to the Jessie and John Danz
Lectureship and Visiting Professorship may be presented to the
Dean of the Graduate School for consideration by the Jessie and
John Danz Committee. Detailed information is contained in Graduate
School Memorandum 34.
||The President of the University may appoint consultants to
departments of the University when they are invited to the University
for consultations in connection with consideration for appointment
or other purposes.
||The Dean of the Graduate School may allocate funds from the
Graduate School Research Fund to members of the faculty to provide
modest honoraria to distinguished scholars and other persons
who may visit for a day or a short period at the University
to consult or confer with members of the faculty or their
graduate students, and/or to present a lecture or a seminar or
the like. Additional information is incorporated in Executive Order No. 26.
