Seal of the City of Vienna

Austrian Trade Commissioner Wilhelm Brauner (below right) presented the Seal of the City of Vienna to University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Chancellor Leonard Haas at the Seventh Annual Viennese Ball in 1980. The medallion duplicates the oldest seal in the city’s history, dating to the early 13th century.

Leonard Haas and Wilhelm Brauner

The Brauner Award is named to recognize Wilhelm and Ingrid Brauner, whose efforts were significant in the development of the Viennese Ball. The award recognizes outstanding academic achievement and service to UW-Eau Claire and supports international study in Austria or another German-speaking country.

Excellence. Our Measure. Our Motto. Our Goal.
