Henry Brean, a Reporter for the Arizona Daily Star

Henry Brean, an Arizona Daily Star reporter covering water and environment issues since joining in 2019, after 25 years at Nevada newspapers, says he’s grateful to be part of an ambitious newsroom like Arizona Daily Star that supports ambitious work like The Water Question; long-standing sources as well as newer colleagues have helped him see this story with fresh eyes.

Early Life and Education

Henry Withy was born in Bristol on 11 November 1852 to Edward Withy and Sarah (nee Atree). He received his early education at Brean Villa (Quaker) Preparatory School, Camden Terrace and Friends’ School Sidcot before going on to serve an apprenticeship for Withy Alexander & Co at West Hartlepool from 1869-1874.

Subsequently, he traveled extensively before joining the Arizona Daily Star newspaper based in Tucson as an environmental reporter in 1921. Soon thereafter he established himself in his community by meeting and interviewing residents for publication purposes.

Henry Brean was committed to fostering equality and diversity at Kenyon, founding the Pope Memorial Scholarship Fund to aid inner-city students attend UGA. She was also at the forefront of campus anti-racist efforts triggered by Charlayne Hunter and Hamilton Holmes’ integration of UGA.

Professional Career

Henry Brean has spent over 25 years as a journalist at Nevada newspapers such as the Las Vegas Review-Journal and Arizona Daily Star, becoming an outstanding journalist of the year award recipient for his coverage of the Colorado River – the main water source for Las Vegas and Southern Nevada.

As an associate at Savills Commercial Real Estate’s Washington, DC office, he provides local and national commercial tenants with tailored real estate solutions that align with their business goals. His responsibilities include conducting market research and workplace strategies as well as supporting his team with high-level deliverables that ensure each transaction satisfies each client’s specific requirements.

One friend and colleague described him as someone who “could play a game of prank phone with you before switching over to being completely serious. He loved jazz and blues music and always remembered his friends’ birthdays.”

Achievement and Honors

Through his career, Brean earned numerous accolades and awards for his contributions to the industry. In 2000 he was honored with the NEC Lifetime Achievement Award – given annually to a member who has made substantial contributions through sponsorships, committee work or general support over time.

From 1997 to 1999 he also served as President of the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and as an Honorary Fellow of Cambridge University.

Personal Life

He was an enthusiastic music lover and took great pleasure in displaying it through his home and landscaping, often surprising people he knew for decades by developing new interests suddenly. Additionally, he could be quite funny and could give as good as he got; indeed, his antics inspired a Montreal Gazette editorial cartoon lampooning Mayor Jean Drapeau’s prediction that Montreal couldn’t run deficits any faster than it could bear children!

Henry hails from Tucson and joined Nevada newspapers for 25 years prior to joining The Star. Henry loves meeting interesting people and hearing their stories; particularly fascinated by Tucson history; exploring its old neighborhoods, as well as discovering new restaurants and stores to dine and shop in.

Net worth

David Beckham made headlines when he joined Major League Soccer three years ago as one of its highest profile players. Since then, France have won both World Cup and Champions League championships while playing for Barcelona before losing their starting lineup last year. Since his arrival with New York Red Bulls on March 14, he has quickly made an impressionful impact; receiving a standing ovation upon introduction at his inaugural match for them.

He has also appeared in numerous movies and TV dramatizations. Most notably he earned himself a Gullruten nomination for portraying Sivert in NRK TV drama Rdebank from 2020-2021.
