John Buller ’69 was the Chair of the 2013 Seafair. Being the chair is no small feat, because SeaFair is one of the largest community celebration/events in the world.

John shared his insider view of Seafair – ranging from the hydro races to the Pirates, to the many community parades, to the newly incorporated Fireworks. One of the amazing facts is that SeaFair may also be one of the largest events almost totally manned by volunteers.

John Buller ’69 is a man who has held many positions in Seattle since his student days – restaurant owner/operator, marketing at Macy’s (aka Bon Marche), head of the UW Alumni Association, and President of Tully’s to name a few.
