About Byron Walter

The Byron L. Walter Trust supported a wide range of community projects including educational initiatives and development on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. The trust is the legacy of Byron L. (Barney) Walter, a native of Monroe, Michigan, who spent most of his adult life in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Mr. Walter attended a trade school in Milwaukee and came to Green Bay in 1898 as a 21-year-old plumber's apprentice. He began his business career as an office boy for the Gotredson Bros. Hardware Company. By the time the Morley Murphy Company bought the store, Mr. Walter had worked his way up to buyer. He left Morley Murphy in 1906 to form a partnership in a new hardware and sheet metal company, later to be known as Green Bay Hardware, Inc., and was president there until his retirement in 1953. He was a cofounder of the Paper Converting Machine Company, which is still active locally and internationally, and served for a time as company president.
