A memorial service for Charles Wegener, the former Howard L. Willet Professor Emeritus in the College, will be held at 4 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 12 in Bond Chapel on the University campus.
Wegener, who died Sunday, Oct. 6, at age 81, considered himself to be primarily an educator. He was a key figure in the reorganization of the College curriculum during the 1960s and 1970s, and he founded both the Religion and Humanities and the Politics, Rhetoric, Economics and Law programs.
Wegener also revived the Committee on the Analysis of Ideas and Study of Methods and helped to create the Universitys New Collegiate division.
He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth Lamb Wegener; his daughters, Paula Schiller (Patrick) Gowans, Julie (Charles Risch) Schiller, and Amy Wegener (Bruce) Noble; and grandchildren Max and James Risch and Andrew Noble.
