TIP SHEET Week of Nov. 11, 2002
Current topics of interest in higher education in western Wisconsin
The United States and Mexico may share the same continent, but they have very different cultures. UW-Eau Claire’s Foster Gallery is featuring an exhibit this month that provides insights into our neighbor to the south. “Divine Humility: Jesus Icons in Contemporary Mexico,” is a photographic exhibition by Robert Lewis of the University of Memphis.
Lewis will give two presentations on the exhibit at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 11, in the Foster Gallery of the Haas Fine Arts Center.
Veterans Day Items
This Veterans Day, the memory of U.S. Navy Lt. Oliver Marion Ramsey, believed by his family to be the first Eau Claire County resident killed in World War II, is being honored by his family in an extraordinary way. Oliver, from Fairchild, was killed in the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal Nov. 13, 1942. Sixty years later, the UW-Eau Claire Foundation has announced a $1.5 million planned gift from James and Anne Ramsey of Longwood, Fla., to establish the Oliver Marion Ramsey Science Chair.
