The Fred Wilson Endowment fund fully exemplifies the spirit that Fred has for Lewis & Clark and the athletic programs on Palatine Hill. Started in October of 2006, in conjunction with the naming of the field in Griswold Stadium, this on-going fund will now enhance the critical funds essential for the recruitment of quality student-athletes in all sports.
Fred Wilson's legacy at Lewis & Clark touched the lives of so many. He began teaching and coaching on Palatine Hill in 1956, after graduating from L&C in 1951. Not only did he serve as the head football coach for 20 years, Fred also coached baseball, wrestling, and golf as well as serving as the Director of Athletics and a professor at the College. In addition to his extensive coaching career, Fred is a five-time inductee to the Lewis & Clark Sports Hall of Fame, once as an individual (1980), twice as a member of an inducted team (1993, 2001), once as an assistant coach (1995), and once as a head coach (2006).
