Stimson Bullitt, 1919-2009
Lawyer, TV exec well known for activism


Stimson Bullitt, a former broadcasting executive whose interests and activism ranged widely from U.S. foreign policy to downtown redevelopment, died Sunday at his West Seattle home.

Bullitt, former president of KING Broadcasting Co., was 89.

Stimson Bullitt was born in a wealthly and politically active family in 1919.

He didn't shy away from activism, either. His views won him a spot on President Richard Nixon's "enemies list" and his interest in reviving downtown Seattle sparked a major redevelopment.

Bullitt was educated at Yale and the University of Washington. He served in the Navy in World War II and received a shrapnel wound during a landing on Leyte in the Philippines.

He returned to Seattle and ran for Congress in 1952. He lost.

He was also a practicing attorney with an interest in the issues of the environment and human rights.

He took over KING Broadcasting in the 1960s, when he criticized U.S. foreign policy and the Vietnam War.

Later, he started buying up crumbling properties along Seattle's First Avenue. His Harbor Properties created 1,300 living units, including the Harbor Steps project.
