“[Oscar] wanted to say ‘thank you’ to the City of Madison, to the University of Wisconsin-Madison and to the residents of the Madison communities that made his success as a businessman possible. So, in his wisdom, he formed and nourished this Foundation.” From Mary Rennebohm’s letter of resignation from the Board, 1991.
