Edward W. Weidner Carillon Fund



Student Type:


Erected in 2009, the Edward W. Weidner Memorial Carillon serves to honor the memory of Dr. Weidner, UW-Green Bay’s first chancellor. Dr. Weidner led the University from his appointment as its first employee in 1966 through his retirement as chancellor in 1986. He remained in Green Bay and was a driving force on behalf of various University and community initiatives. A carillon, those close to him say, was part of his long-term wish list for the campus he founded. Gifts to this fund help preserve the Weidner Memorial Carillon and the surrounding spaces.
