Magazine Profiles

Chancellor Emeritus Edward W. Weidner was the topic of countless profiles, barrels of ink and endless air time during his UW-Green Bay career, 1966-2007. Two of the better ones are archived here: A 1986 profile written upon his retirement by UW-Green Bay News Bureau director Betty Brown for the UW System magazine; and a 1994 recollection of the founding of UWGB, written for a 1994 edition of Voyageur history magazine and the 25th anniversary of the opening of the Shorewood Campus.
