John Kerrigan, ninth UW Oshkosh Chancellor, dies at age 76
His warm, outgoing personality and accessible nature helped him build strong relationships with students, alumni and community friends. The personal connections he developed and nurtured led to many noteworthy contributions to the UW Oshkosh Foundation.
Following his retirement Kerrigan remained an enthusiastic supporter of the University and continued to lend his support to the Foundation's efforts. With his death, the Foundation has lost an esteemed ambassador and a good friend.
Kerrigan's legacy endures through the John and Pat Kerrigan Scholarship, awarded to sophomore students with academic and leadership potential, and the John E. Kerrigan Professorship.
