A Sign for "Bud" Weiser

Bud WeiserIn 1955 Robert "Bud" Weiser looked up and saw a sign. For weeks he'd tried to get the attention of nursing sophomore Sue Beauchamp who lived across the street, but she never responded. This time when he looked out the window, she was holding a sign saying "Hi!"

Bud, BA '58, MA '60, and Sue, Nur '59, were introduced and married three years later. Bud's career with Mobil (now ExxonMobil) took them all over the world. "When we started our estate planning, the first thing that came to mind was our alma mater," Bud says.

The Weisers pledged an estate gift to MU the same year as their 50th wedding anniversary. For more information about how you can include MU in your estate plans, please contact The Office of Gift Planning and Endowments at 1-800-970-9977 or 573-882-0272 or today!
