The Geoffrey D. Palmer ’61 Endowed Scholarship

“I hope that my scholarship can open the door to an Adelphi education for future students.”  – Geoffrey Palmer ’61

As an Adelphi student, Geoffrey Palmer ’61 was president of the Inter-Fraternity Council and a member of the campus police, Class of 1961 gift committee, Chi Sigma fraternity, Squash team, and Students Association.

After graduating with his degree in history he worked for Bausch & Lomb, the New York Times, and Xerox Publishing and served in the United States Army. He then embarked on a career in finance, which culminated in the role of vice president for UBS Financial Services, the firm he was with for more than 30 years.

A resident of Madison, Connecticut, Palmer has been elected to the Madison Board of Finance and has served as the chairman of the Madison Health and Human Services Commission, the president and director of the Madison Foundation, as well as the vice president of A Better Chance, a program for inner-city students who come to Madison for their high school careers.

He continues to be involved at his alma mater.  He is a member of the Ruth S. Harley Planned Giving Society and established of the Geoffrey D. Palmer Endowed ’61 Scholarship for the benefit of Adelphi students from his home region in upstate New York.
