Weis Memorial Lecture
The Sigmund Weis Memorial Lectureship in Business was established at Susquehanna University in 1979 by Claire G. Weis, now deceased, in memory of her husband. Sigmund Weis (1883-1955) was an honors graduate in Susquehanna’s class of 1903. With his brother Harry Weis (class of 1900), he founded Weis Pure Food Stores Inc. in 1912. Weis Markets Inc. operates more than 150 stores in the Mid-Atlantic region. The purpose of the endowed Weis Lectureship is to bring prominent persons from business and public life to the campus to speak on matters of interest to the university and the area business community.
