Carson Gulley 1897 1962
  • Head chef at the UW, Van Hise refectory 1927 to 1954, now known as Carson Gulley Commons.
  • Gulley had his own televised cooking show.
  • Led the Madison branch of the NAACP.
  • Having failed for many years to buy a house in Madison, he made an emotional appeal to the Madison City Council's Committee on Human Rights. This in part led to the Fair Housing Ordinance.
  • Hit a hole-in-one at the 8th hole at Glenway Golf Course. He vowed to be buried as close to that hole as possible and left word that if the cemetery ever expands he wants to be moved. Right now he lies just a chip shot away.
