School of Nursing Mourns the Passing of William Donald Schaefer

Baltimore, Md. -- The faculty, staff, students, and alumni of the University of Maryland School of Nursing offer heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of former Maryland Governor William Donald Schaefer and Ms. Hilda Mae Snoops. He was a long-time friend of our School and the nursing profession. We appreciated his kind heart, his willingness to serve, and his understanding of the true meaning of health care. Governor Schaefer will be sorely missed.
