WI Campus libraries receive $1 million bequest for Friends

Wow! A Madison bibliophile has left a large share of his estate, nearly $1 million, to the University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries to benefit its Friends organization. Douglas Schewe, who taught at Madison Area Technical College, made the bequest to encourage the campus and the larger community to read print books. Income from the endowment will be targeted to promote reading and to support lectures and outreach to campus and the wider Madison area.
