About the Donor
The fund was established by Frederick Weiser (Class of 1957) in honor of his father, Donald Weiser (Class of 1924).
Donald K. Weiser (1902-1992) was born in Gettysburg and attended its namesake high school. At Gettysburg College, he was a member of Phi Kappa Psi, whose house is named for him. Most of his career was spent as a general manager for Aetna Life and Casualty in Chicago. He retired to Gettysburg and became a longtime trustee of the college. His son Frederick donated a number of wood figurines to the college library, where they are often on display.
