Charlie Brown, B.A. '69

In 2014 Charlie was named the College of A&S Outstanding Alumnus and created a $1,500 annual scholarship for political science majors from CO.  Former Colorado State Representative and served more than 14 years as a member of the Denver City Council.  Charlie's UW hat was proudly displayed on my desk in the council chamber and he was known as the “Cowboy Councilman” preferring boots, bolos and a cowboy hat to three-piece suits.

After high school, Charlie hitch-hiked to Grand Teton National Park where he worked for eight summers as a guide on the Snake River.  The lore and love of the West ruled and he transferred from UNC-Chapel Hill to UW and earned a bachelor’s degree in political science.
