Anchored by Jesuit values

Posted on Monday, November 10, 2014

ScottGrimm_400In 2008, Scott Grimm (political science, '81) and a fellow diver discovered a 900-pound anchor believed to be lost by the HMS Chatham as it passed through Puget Sound on the Vancouver Expedition in the 1790s.  

Right before the anchor was hoisted out of the water in June, Grimm made one last visit to the scene of the discovery, as shown in the picture here, which he recently shared. "It was a thrill of a lifetime and very emotional for me," says Grimm. "I wanted to make sure that Seattle University was noted, for the Jesuits were very influential in developing my passion for history."  

As Grimm said in a May 2014 interview with Seattle Met, "(T)he Jesuits have always taught to question assumptions. I had a great priest who once told me, 'Ninety-eight percent of all the scientists thought that Isaac Newton was wrong. You have to always approach life with the assumption that things aren't right until you prove that they are.'"
