About100 Women Wall of Honor

Mary Kunz Berge

Paul Berge, University of Wisconsin-Madison alumnus (BBA 1960 Finance), has chosen to honor his wife, Mary Kunz Berge (1937-2012) (BS 1961 Home Economics), through the 100 Women Campaign. “This is a way to recognize Mary for her loyalty and dedication to the School of Human Ecology and her efforts on behalf of the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection,” he said. “She was a student of Helen Louise Allen and retained her notes from those classes. She took great pride and was very appreciative of her education and always felt that it’s important to give back to the School and the university.” Mary was a longtime member of the School’s Board of Visitors, Paul Berge noted. “She felt very strongly as the whole board did about the need for the expansion and new facilities,” he added. “The existing facilities are inadequate and it’s time for the School of Human Ecology to have new facilities. The financial support is a way for our family to recognize her and also assist in a small way in the completion of the building project.”
