Emily Lewis Lee ('43)
World War II Veteran

For Emily Lee, collecting tin or knitting wool squares for the war effort was not enough. Emily rushed to earn her American Dietetics Association registration, then Lt. Lee supervised hospital-kitchen personnel nourishing wounded stateside servicemen. A sterling example of America's "Greatest Generation," Emily funded a Madison alumni center terrace that honors the WWII veterans who saved the world.
