Donors Endow Scholarship, Coaching Funds

Story posted June 15, 1998

BRUNSWICK, Maine --Anonymous donors have established endowed funds to support three academic scholarships and a named coaching position at Bowdoin College, all in honor of longtime Bowdoin administrators.

The scholarship funds are named for Alfred H. Fuchs, who retired in 1998 after serving as a professor of psychology, department chair, and dean of the faculty; Walter H. Moulton, who has served as director of student aid at Bowdoin since 1967 and last week won the 35th annual Alumni Award for Faculty and Staff; and Sidney J. Watson, who has served as varsity ice hockey coach and athletic director at Bowdoin since 1959.

Annual income from the scholarship funds will be used to support scholarships for qualified Bowdoin undergraduates. The original principal from the funds will be maintained as part of the College's endowment.

Two other anonymous donors have endowed the Sidney J. Watson Men's Varsity Ice Hockey Coach position. The endowed named coaching position recognizes Watson's stellar career behind the bench for the Polar Bears from 1959 to 1983, during which time Bowdoin's teams won four ECAC Division II titles. The endowed scholarships and named coaching position were announced at on-campus retirement and award celebrations late last month.
