The Dr. Herbert L. Zobel Geography Education Colloquium Series Endowment was established in January 2013 through a generous bequest from Dr. Zobel. He received both his BSE '48 and his MSE '49 from Illinois State University. He received his MA '60 from Northwestern University and his Ph.D. '64 from the University of Michigan-Dearborn. Dr. Zobel was an emeritus professor at Kent State University. The purpose of this fund is to defray expenses associated with the weekly geography education colloquium series.
