Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Born in Seattle in 1918, Jeanette Williams attended Mercer Grade School and graduated from Queen Anne High School. She attended the Cornish School of Music and received degrees from the University of Washington and the American Conservatory of Music in Chicago as a violin major. She married in the 1940s and settled in Seattle, raising her two children in View Ridge.

In 1962, Williams became chairperson of the King County Democrats. Running for City Council in 1969, Williams stressed two issues: establishing City programs for senior citizens and issues surrounding turning Sand Point Naval Base into a park. Williams served on City Council from 1970 until 1989, when she was defeated in her bid for a sixth term after a fiercely competitive race against Cheryl Chow.

Williams chaired six committees during her tenure on City Council, including: Human Resources and Judiciary 1970-1977; Transportation 1978-1981 and 1988-1989; Labor 1982-1983; City Operations 1984-1985; Parks and Public Grounds 1986-1987; and Intergovernmental Relations 1986-1989.

One of Williams' earliest accomplishments was the establishment of the Fair Campaign Practices Ordinance in 1971 and subsequent amendments. Legislation included a matching fund program and required candidates to list their contributors. The City ordinance was used by the State later when it drafted a campaign reform law. Two other important projects in Williams' tenure include construction of the West Seattle Bridge and acquisition of Kubota Gardens in the Rainier Beach area. The Office of Hearing Examiner was also created under Williams. Established in 1973, it was a judicial body ruling on land-use disputes.

Williams successfully advocated the creation of the Seattle Women’s Commission which was established in 1971. Her work on the women's issues was recognized at the first annual Seattle Women’s Summit on October 19, 2002. She also worked on issues related to equal rights in housing and employment. As the Chair of the Parks and Public Grounds Committee Williams worked on issues related to the Disney proposal for Seattle Center redevelopment. Williams' interest in the development of Sand Point Magnuson Park existed many years prior to its creation in 1974.

Williams continued to be active in civic duties after leaving City Council. In 1999, she was appointed by the mayor to the Sand Point Blue Ribbon Committee, charged to review the park’s plan and make recommendations. She was the Chairperson of the Sand Point Liaison Committee during the 1990s. Williams served on the Advisory Council of the Seattle-Chongqing Sister City Association and served as a member of United Neighbors. In 2003, she was named to an 18-member Citizen Advisory Panel on Council Elections that studied the pros and cons of district, proportional, at-large, and other forms of representation. Williams died October 24, 2008.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

Jeanette Williams worked hard while on Council, evidenced by the issues she took on and the persistence with which she pursued them. Williams was also not afraid to take a stand on issues she cared about. The Jeanette Williams Records reflect her committee work on the Seattle City Council. Key issues include the West Seattle Freeway Bridge, I-90, Seattle Center, Discovery Park, Sand Point, fair employment and open housing. The work of her legislative aides, especially Tom Rasmussen, is evident through her papers.

Researchers are encouraged to use the Documents database in conjunction with the Jeanette Williams Papers. Documents on topics such as the Martha Washington / Kubota Garden site, Discovery Park, and I-90 complement Williams' papers. Other Councilmember records serving concurrently will be useful to researchers as well. Some of these include Paul Kraabel, Michael Hildt, and Norm Rice.

Container(s) Description Dates
Intergovernmental Relations
The subseries Intergovernmental Relations reflects activity at the county, state and international level. The 1.8 cubic feet of records in this subseries date from 1972 to 1989, although most date from 1977 to 1989. Records relating to initiatives regarding peace in Central America are included. Records regarding Seattle's sister city relationships as well as Williams' trip to China in the 1980s are part of the subseries as well. Of note are records relating to Williams' participation in the Local Governance Study Commission (.4 cf). The Commission was created by the State Legislature in 1985 at the joint initiative of the Association of Washington Cities and Washington State Association of Counties. The Commission focused on continued urban growth in unincorporated areas and how to accommodate local government service, issues that cross jurisdictional boundaries and fiscal constraints for local governments. Presentations by many different local governments, including Yakima County and the City of Vancouver are included in the records, as well as summaries of discussions for the group as a whole.

II: Land Use and Urban Development
The Land Use and Urban Development subseries measures 5.8 cubic feet and dates from 1970 to 1989. One significant topics was the design and location of the Convention Center, a lengthy decision-making process from 1982 to 1983. Consideration was given to locating the Convention Center at the Seattle Center. Issues taken into consideration at public meetings and in other discussions included housing, housing demolition, air rights, rights of way and traffic amenities, and naming. Documents include meeting agendas, correspondence, drafts of agreements, reports and newspaper clippings. Another large issue during Williams' tenure was the establishment of greenbelts. Policies, definitions, priorities for acquisition, and legal issues are touched on in her records, primarily dating from 1983 to 1984. Greenbelt overlay districts were also introduced, establishing a set of zoning regulations to protect and preserve Seattle's greenbelts, where appropriate, throughout the Land Use Code. The Sand Point folders relate to potential uses of the 195 acres at the former Naval Air Station and development into the Warren G. Magnuson Park. The deed for the property was accepted by the City in 1975 but planning for its use started well before then. Some material also relates to issues surrounding the location of a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) regional headquarters facility in an adjacent area to the north. Other topics include odor and parking issues with the Fauntleroy Ferry, parking issues throughout the City, and Westlake Mall.

III: Legislative and Interdepartmental Affairs
The Legislative and Interdepartmental Affairs subseries measures 3.8 cubic feet and dates from 1969 to 1989. Of note in this subseries is are the records relating to ethics and fair campaign practices. Investigation of campaign contributions from the music machine, otherwise known as the jukebox industry, to the campaigns of Councilmembers George Cooley, Wayne Larkin and Jeanette Williams is included in the records. Williams also had an important role in the establishment of a code of ethics and fair campaign practices for city offices and employees and her work in this area is reflected in this subseries. Records relating to the creation of a Board of Ethics and those selected to serve on the board are included. Reports and correspondence related to campaign finance reform legislation in the 1970s, limiting amount of contributions to campaigns and allowing matching City funds for candidates who agreed to limit their total spending to a specific amount are part of this subseries. Minutes and reports exist for the "Blue Ribbon" Committee Williams appointed in 1976 to revise the Fair Campaign Practice Ordinance. Williams' work to standardize legislative oversight of City boards and commissions is also reflected here. Williams conducted an overview of the work of boards and commissions citywide and recommended Council review them biennially, with the authority to terminate, modify, or reestablish them. Authorizing legislation was passed in 1970. Records relating to Williams' role in the establishment of the Office of Women's Rights and the Seattle Women's Commission are also included in this subseries, as well as those regarding the proposed consolidation of the Department of Human Rights and the Office of Women's Rights by the Office of Management and Budget. Other topics reflected in this subseries include the reorganization of the Office of Policy and Planning, space planning for the City, and the creation of a policy regarding citizen participation in government.

IV: Parks, Recreation and Culture
The Parks, Recreation and Culture subseries is the second-largest subseries in Williams' records. The largest quantity of records in this subseries is devoted to the Seattle Center. The records of the Citizens Advisory Commission in the mid-1980s are included and relate to creating a long range plan for the Seattle Center, developing policies, and establishing a mission. The records of the Management Institutional Alternatives Commission of the late 1980s, which examined the management of the Center, are also included. In the late 1980s, the City Council and mayor considered a proposal from Disney to do an economic and conceptual development plan for the Seattle Center. Correspondence and reports reflect exploration of the issue by Council. The proposal was supported by the Mayor, but not entirely fully supported by Council. Williams was one of the Council members who proposed putting the project out for bids and not limiting it to a Disney plan. Within parks related material, the largest quantity of records relate to development of Fort Lawton into Discovery Park. This topic is also well-documented in records of the Department of Parks and Recreation, in other City Council records, and the Documents collection. Records relating to the decision process surrounding the siting of the Chinese Garden, a gift to the City from its sister city Chongquing are also in this subseries under Chinese Garden, Kubota Gardens, and Martha Washington. Other records in this subseries relate to the Lakeside Trail and the Burke-Gilman Trail, Seacrest Marina, and the Parks Code and security issues. There is a large amount of constituent mail relating to various park issues in this subseries. The smallest amount of material in this subseries relate to the arts.

VI: Public Safety
The Public Safety subseries is the smallest in Williams' records, measuring .8 cubic foot. Half of it is constituent mail, dating primarily from the mid-1980s, on a wide variety of issues ranging from noise control to pan handling. The rest of the records relate to discussions regarding changes in the criminal code in the early 1970s. Sections of the code up for consideration included: drug offenses, restitution to victims, gambling, arrest and citation, use of force, lewd conduct, juvenile offenses and unfair housing practices. Records include press releases from Williams' office, public hearing information, speeches, committee minutes and correspondence with the Law Department and others.

VIII: Transportation
The Transportation subseries is the largest in Williams' subject files, 13.4 cubic feet. Although Williams chaired the Committee from 1978 to 1981 and 1988 to 1989, she was a member of the Committee from 1976 to 1986 and involved in many transportation projects. The work of legislative aide Tom Rasmussen is evident throughout this subseries. The largest project was the West Seattle Bridge; almost one third of the records in the Transportation subseries are devoted to the West Seattle Bridge project. The construction of a new West Seattle Bridge was an issue after the freighter Chavez rammed it on June 11, 1978, closing it for seven years. Williams, along with Mayor Charles Royer, recruited U.S. Senator Warren G. Magnuson to obtain federal funds and the participation of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as project manager for the high-level bridge. The new span was dedicated on July 14, 1984, at a cost of $150 million, and a new pivot-wing bridge later replaced the original bascule bridge. Discussions regarding both the high level and the low level bridges are included, and range from bicycles to landscaping. A complex project, records include those of citizen commissions, Port of Seattle, King County, State of Washington, other City departments, and citizens. The number of her files on Interstate-90 reflects her involvement this project. Williams was a member of both the Puget Sound Governmental Conference (PSGC)’s Transportation Policy Advisory Committee and their Committee on I-90, the Governor’s Committee on I-90, the I-90 Policy Review Committee, the I-90 Task Force (City and Metro), and the Committee for Balanced Regional Transportation. The freeway lid, funding and the number of lanes were some of the issues that were debated and discussed with City departments, citizens and state and other government officials. Williams also worked on issues related to Metro's MetroTRANSITion plan, a long-range transit planning program, improving pedestrian traffic downtown, increasing the number of buses, building new park and ride lots and renovating the trolley system. Williams and her staff worked closely with Metro, encouraging an emphasis on use of electricity for transit facilities. Williams was also involved with citizen commissions working on Metro transportation issues. Parking overlaps Land Use and Transportation; both neighborhood traffic and parking issues appear in the Transportation subseries. The City's efforts to develop transportation goals and policies are evident in this subseries as well. Background material on traffic code revisions in 1978 is included here as well.
