Maxwell salutes one of our most distinguished veteran alums, Don Waful ’37 BA (PSc), ’39 MA (PSc)


Don Waful is pictured on the right with Chancellor Kent Syverud at the 11/2/14 Syracuse football game. Waful is one of Maxwell’s oldest alumni, earning degrees from both the Maxwell School and Arts & Sciences. He has had many claims to fame: a World War II POW camp survivor, veteran trombonist, longtime president of the Syracuse Chiefs, and the subject of a recent musical. An avowed Syracuse football fan, Don has missed only four home games since the ‘40s and has never missed a home game in the Carrier Dome. What’s even more astonishing is that he still drives himself to almost every game! Maxwell is extremely proud to call Don Waful our alum.
