Nobel Prize winner addresses all Central classmates

When Oliver Williamson was awarded the Nobel Prize for economics last year, his classmates from Superior's Central High School Class of 1950 were ecstatic for their classmate.

The Edgar F. Kaiser professor emeritus of business, economics and law at the Haas School of Business, and a professor of economics in University of California Berkeley's College of Letters and Science still spends summers at the family cabin in Lake Nebagamon.

Williamson is going to be the featured speaker as his classmates and those who preceded and followed gather to celebrate on the 100th anniversary of the school's opening during an all-class reunion.

The Superior Central All Class Reunion Committee meets at 5 p.m. Tuesday at the Superior High School cafeteria.

Alumni who volunteered to help with registration, the memorabilia room and other reunion tasks are asked to attend the meeting to set up schedules. Volunteers also are asked to help set up and decorate Wessman Arena at the University of Wisconsin-Superior starting at 10 a.m. Aug. 2

The reunion runs Aug. 3-4 at Wessman, and registration begins at 9 a.m. Aug. 3. Call (715) 399-8152 for information.
