President Henking Visits with Alumni in Dallas

The memory of two Shimerians are honored with endowed funds in their names

Charles and Jane Pak graciously welcomed Shimer alumni and their partners to their Dallas home.

The group honored the memory of former Shimer faculty member Robert W. Russell, Professor of English Literature at Shimer from 1953 – 1955, and Emma Waring Walbridge, mother to Ed Walbridge and Ann Walbridge Palmer (as well as Ruth Walbridge Suzuki and Charles Walbridge, not pictured).

The Paks recently made two endowed gifts to support Shimer, The Robert W. Russell Academic Support Fund and The Emma Waring Walbridge Administrative Support Fund. Shimer College acknowledges this gift with gratitude and hope for the future.

Thank you to the hosts, and to everyone who attended.
