WesternU Board Chairman Emeritus Warren Lawless Dies
Date:1/14/2014

, he studied business and the humanities at the University of Washington while working as a journeyman typographer for the West Seattle Herald. He rose steadily through the newspaper’s ranks, eventually becoming manager of retail advertising sales before leaving to start his own printing and management company in the late 1960s, which he operated until his retirement in 1988.

Lawless was also deeply involved in community service, as part of the West Seattle Chamber of Commerce but most notably as a member of the Kiwanis Club of West Seattle, where he held several positions, including president and secretary.
