Olin alum Maj. Wolfer memorialized at North Campus

Lee Wolfer of Eagle, Idaho, the widow of Maj. Stuart Wolfer, speaks April 18 during a Stuart Wolfer memorial event at North Campus.
Stuart Wolfer, who earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1993 from Washington University, was an Army reservist killed during a mortar attack in Iraq in 2008.
The ROTC celebrated Wolfer’s life and commitment to his country with the unveiling and dedication of Major Stuart Adam Wolfer Hall. While a student at WUSTL, Wolfer was active in student government, ROTC and Hillel, and he remained engaged as an alumnus. Some 100 ROTC cadets approached Lt. Col. Jim Craig asking if they could honor Wolfer’s life of service. Many attended the memorial event, including ROTC cadets, Olin Business School classmates and members of Hillel and of the Olin Veterans Association. (Credit: Jerry Naunheim Jr.)
