Anne and M. Roger Clapp Hall


"For more than a quarter century you have provided leadership and support for every aspect of this institution, always quietly and with no desire for recognition, and in doing so you have contributed to the advancement of knowledge and to better lives for us all. We thank you and we salute you," Prez. Agnar Pytte presenting them the University Medal.

"Roger and Anne Clapp have set the standard for what it means to be trustees of this university. When the University's history over the last quarter century is written the Clapps will receive prominent mention. Along with the generosity and active leadership for which we know them best, they are people who have consistently avoided the limelight," CWRU Board Chair John F. Lewis at University Medal ceremony.

M. Roger and Anne Clapp have provided leadership and support for every aspect of Case Western Reserve University, and in doing so have contributed to the advancement of knowledge and to the betterment of life as a whole.
