In Memory of Dr. Frederic J. Skalny
On September 17, 2016, the Skalny Center experienced a painful loss with the passing of our great friend and supporter, Dr. Frederic J. Skalny. Dr. Skalny was the senior member of the boards of the Louis Skalny Foundation and the Joseph and Irene Skalny Charitable Trust, and played a key role in the creation of the Center for Polish and Central European Studies at the University of Rochester in 1994. He was active in the Polish-American and Rochester communities and was an artist and avid gardener. He was a recipient of the distinguished Cavalier Cross of Merit from the Republic of Poland, the Distinguished Service Award from the Polish American Historical Association, the Plus Ratio Quam Vis medal, which honors persons distinguished for eminent services to Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland, and many other awards. He is very much missed.
