Memorial Celebration Scheduled for Dr. Nelson P. Guild, Former Frostburg State President
In memory of Dr. Nelson P. Guild, former Frostburg State president who passed away early this year, a tribute will be held on campus at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, May 4, in the FSU Performing Arts Center Pealer Recital Hall. The public is invited to attend.
The event, entitled, “Celebrating the Guild Years,” will pay honor to the man who came to Frostburg State College as dean in 1965 and served as FSC president from 1969 to 1985. During his tenure, the college strengthened and expanded both graduate and undergraduate programs, constructed new residence halls and other campus buildings including a library and the physical education center and was instrumental in the planning of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. Enrollment grew from 2,010 to 3,227 during his presidency and the annual budget increased from $3.9 million to $23.8 million.
Personal memories will be shared, musical selections will be performed and a special video will be shown during the tribute. In addition, photos and mementos from Dr. Guild’s years at Frostburg will be on display. A reception will follow.
