From The Archives: Remembering William H. Danforth In His Own Words
William H. Danforth II died on Wednesday. The former chancellor of Washington University helped transform the institution into a top-tier school, and he was the founding chairman of the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center.
Danforth was a guest on St. Louis on the Air several times. On today’s program we listened to excerpts from his appearance in February 2008. Danforth talked about his upbringing, the mission of the plant science center and his hope for the future.
“St. Louis on the Air” brings you the stories of St. Louis and the people who live, work and create in our region. The show is hosted by Sarah Fenske and produced by Alex Heuer, Emily Woodbury, Evie Hemphill and Lara Hamdan. The audio engineer is Aaron Doerr.
