Collection Historical Note

A native St. Louisan and active community volunteer, James Schiele, AB '52, MLA '85, acquired over several decades the historic images that constitute the Schiele Collection. He and his wife, Joan Singer Schiele, donated the collection to University Libraries and established an endowment to help support conservation and expansion of the collection. Fueled by his enthusiasm, Schiele has committed countless years to serving Washington University through membership on the Alumni Board of Governors, the Eliot Society Membership Committee, the W Club Executive Committee, his Class Reunion Committee, the International Advisory Council for Asia, the Scholars in Arts & Sciences, and as a member of the Murray Wiedenbaum Center on the Economy, Government, and PublicPolicy.
