Paul Olscamp a savvy administrator as president of WWU
I read the short Bellingham Herald story the other day about the death of Paul Olscamp, who was president of Western Washington University from 1975 to 1982. He died Oct. 14 in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, at the age of 77.
Olscamp’s name rang a distant bell for me, but I didn’t know much about him. He became president two years after I graduated from Western, and believe me, as a young person out of college I wasn’t busy tracking the ins and outs of college administrators.
