Campus received word of the passing of philanthropist and friend of the University, Dorothy Blair, who died May 20 after a short illness. Mrs. Blair and her late husband, John P. Blair, were devoted friends of the University of Wisconsin and its Green Bay campus. Their generosity is visible on the landscape — the bronze “Doe with Fawns” sculpture by renowned wildlife artists William and David Turner is located at the Nicolet Entrance. Also, in October 2003, Mrs. Blair announced a $1.5 million gift with the family foundation to create this institution’s first endowed chair, the John P. Blair Endowed Chair in Communication today held by Prof. Timothy Meyer. It was and is the largest single academic gift to UW-Green Bay not related to facilities.
