As the mayor of Denver in the late 1940s, Quigg Newton helped streamline and modernize city government. He also made outstanding contributions to the University of Colorado, where he served as president for seven years, and to the Commonwealth Fund in New York, where he oversaw some of the most significant initiatives in medical education. This important biography, written by University of Colorado history professor Mark Foster, pays tribute to Newton's distinguished career and his contributions to civil service and academia.
