Shorewood University? Archives team uncovers what could’ve been
Our own UW-Green Bay Archives and Area Research Center recently uncovered a postcard for Nicolet University, which was a promotional piece used by the early community committee that led the charge for a four-year campus in Green Bay. The archives team also unearthed founding Chancellor Edward Weidner’s handwritten notes with all the names he was considering for UW-Green Bay — among them University of Bay Verte, University of Northeast and Shorewood University. Check out these and other fun facts.
