Arthur E. (Gene) Dewey Bruce W. Doud

Gene DeweyGene Dewey grew up on a dairy farm between Mainesburg and Sylvania, and attended the Grey Valley one-room school for the first eight grades. His father, the Reverend Glenn Dewey, pastored country churches for decades in the Bakerburg, Austinville, and Roseville communities. 

Gene Dewey then went on to graduate from Mansfield Junior and Senior High Schools, finishing in the Class of 1951. Encouraged by his high school math teacher - Max Milliren - and with the assistance of Wellsboro attorney G. Mason Owlett, and his Mansfield uncle Dr. Myron Webster, he secured a Congressional Appointment to the U.S. Military Academy from Pennsylvania Congressman Alvin Bush to enter West Point in 1952.

Dewey graduated from West Point and was commissioned in the Army Corps of Engineers in 1956. He obtained a Masters Degree from Princeton University in 1961. Twenty-five years of military service included two combat tours of duty as an Army aviator in Vietnam and three Pentagon tours in the Departments of Army and Defense. The West Point Association of Graduates named Dewey as a “Distinguished Graduate of West Point” in 2006. 

A career in international humanitarian crisis management began with his work assignment as a White House Fellow, 1968-70. He served as operations director for President Nixon’s Coordinator for Nigeria/Biafra Humanitarian Relief during the 1967-70 Nigerian Civil War.

Subsequent assignments after moving from the U.S. Army to the U.S. State Department in 1981 included Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, Bureau for Refugee Programs, in President Reagan’s Administration, and Assistant Secretary of State, Bureau for Population, Refugees and Migration under President George W. Bush. Dewey’s eighteen years at the State Department included a four year secondment to the United Nations as an Assistant Secretary General and UN Deputy High Commissioner for Refugees, 1986-90. A final U.S. government posting was as  the U.S. member of the International Independent Group of Eminent Persons overseeing investigation of human rights violations during the Sri Lankan Civil War, 2006-08.

Sixty-two years ago Gene Dewey married the former Priscilla Parce of Syracuse and Utica, NY. They now reside in Washington, DC. The Dewey’s daughter, Parce Ainsworth, lives in New York City with her husband Antony Ainsworth and 14 year old daughter Charlotte. Parce now owns and manages the farm outside of Mainesburg, PA, where her father was born. Gene returns to the farm each year for the black bear, wild turkey, and whitetail deer hunting seasons.


The event below commemorated Dewey's involvement in the founding of the U.S. private sector counterpart to the UN Refugee Agency - USA for UNHCR (UN High Commissioner for Refugees) - to raise both awareness and resources on behalf of refugees worldwide. The event described below launched the “Gene Dewey Refugee Legacy of Leadership Award” - a continuing leadership development program to encourage greater American individual participation in humanitarian action. 

Note that Michael Gerson delivered the principal address at the event. Gerson served in the George W. Bush White House as Assistant to the President for Policy and Strategic Planning. He is a nationally syndicated columnist appearing regularly in the Washington Post as well as more than 100 other news outlets including PBS Newshour and Face the Nation.Invitation
