Bill Blair

Bill Blair

As a gardener, Bill Blair (BS '50) knew how to nurture a tiny seedling into a healthy plant. As a retired petroleum landman, he also understood the importance of building relationships that develop into profitable ventures.

Following those same principles, Blair knew that his alma mater could benefit from his steady and sustained support, ultimately building a stronger university.

Through the years, Bill was a stalwart university benefactor to the Collins College of Business, McFarlin Fellows and several other areas of the university's endeavors.

In 1993, he initiated a planned gift that established the Bill G. Blair Endowed Chair in Business Administration, as well as funding generous scholarships for students pursuing degrees in accounting.

Truly his gifts are evergreen.
