Schillhammer Hall Dedicated at Champlain CollegeChamplain College Dedicates Schillhammer Hall
When Richard W. Schillhammer graduated from Champlain College in 1934, he was wellprepared to make his way in the business world. And he did—founding Queen City Printers, a highly reputable enterprise that thrives today in Burlington, Vermont.

As Queen City Printers earned its respected place in the business community, two generations of Schillhammers became members of the Champlain College community. Following Schillhammer, now a trustee emeritus, were son John and daughter-inlaw Anna—1960 and 1962 grads, respectively. Richard’s granddaughter Shari and her husband, Randy, also attended Champlain and earned degrees in 1983.

This spring, the College honored the Schillhammer legacy—and Richard’s contributions to the institution—by dedicating a student residence hall in his name. Schillhammer Hall, formerly East Hall, is located at 109 Summit Street in a building erected in 1894 and acquired by Champlain College in 1994.
