Clarkson dedicates AD office in honor of Potsdam’s Fiesinger


POTSDAM — Clarkson University recently dedicated the Fiesinger Athletic Director’s Office in the Alumni Gymnasium in honor of F. William Fiesinger, a 1937 graduate, and his wife, Jane Fiesinger, both of Potsdam.

The dedication was made possible by a gift from Richard P. and Jean S. Fiesinger to honor Richard’s uncle. Richard Fiesinger is a 1967 graduate.

A star athlete, student leader and scholar, Bill Fiesinger graduated with a bachelor of science degree in civil engineering. He played football, basketball and baseball. He was the leading scorer for the football team, was a member of Lambda Iota fraternity and was elected Ice Carnival king. At his graduation, Mr. Fiesinger was presented the Frederica Clarkson Award in recognition of his accomplishments.

In 1959, he moved his family to Potsdam to become the first full-time director of the Clarkson Alumni Association.

Mr. Fiesinger served Clarkson in a number of other external relations roles and in 1974 was named Clarkson’s director of athletics, where he served until his retirement in 1979.
