Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Judge William G. Long (1894-1974) was appointed to the King County Juvenile Court in 1933 by Governor Martin. He served on both the King County Juvenile Court and the Superior Court from 1940-1970. Much of his service focused on fighting juvenile delinquency and other youth issues. He was considered the "father" of the King County Youth Service Center and helped with the formation of the Seattle-King County Metropolitan Youth Commission. He received many honors throughout his distinguished career, including the Wing Luke Award in 1966 by the Seattle-King County Youth Commission in recognition of his superior service in the field of youth development.

In 1937, Judge Long, along with Archie Phelps and Ben Evans, worked together to create Camp Long, a park in West Seattle that was designed to give organized scouting groups a place to learn camping skills. Camp Long opened to the public in 1984. Judge Long also had a weekly 15-minute radio program on KIRO called "The Judge's Notebook," which focued on the local juvenile justice system. Judge Long lived in West Seattle with his wife, Maude, and his children, William, Alva, Louise, and Marion. He died on January 3, 1974.
