1. Sullivan, William J., SJ (HistoryLink.org, Paula Becker). Father William J. Sullivan is a Jesuit priest who for 20 years (1976-1996) served as president of Seattle University. During his presidency he guided that institution's growth and stabilized its financial foundation. Following his tenure as president, he served for another 11 years as chancellor. Sullivan also distinguished himself as a leader in the greater Seattle community. He chaired the Seattle Organizing Committee for the 1990 Goodwill Games and volunteered his considerable expertise for the benefit of many educational organizations throughout the Pacific Northwest.
