If only eight more classmates give back by June 30, 2022, and help us reach our goal of 222 donors, the Windlands will make a gift of $100,000!

About the Windlands

Upon graduation from high school in the small Southern Illinois town of Mounds, Harry Windland enrolled in the Civil Engineering school at the University of Illinois. He graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Civil Engineering in 1961.  He was designated  a Distinguished Military Graduate of the Army ROTC,  commissioned  a 2nd Lieutenant in the Army Ordnance Corps and served two years active duty. His thirty-year career in management at Illinois Bell Telephone Company included the design and construction of Network facilities, management of electromechanical and electronic switching systems, installation and maintenance of customer premises telephone equipment, as well as a variety of staff assignments. In 1985 Mr. Windland earned a Master’s Degree in Management Science from Maryville University in St. Louis.

Following his retirement from Illinois Bell he taught management and finance for four years at the College of DuPage in suburban Chicago and consulted on management training. After moving back to Southern Illinois in 1993 he researched and compiled the genealogy of his four grandparent lineages, participated in numerous historical reenactments, and worked as a volunteer for several not-for-profit organizations.

Carol Brouse Windland graduated from high school in Tulsa, Oklahoma in1966 and enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis that same year. Mrs. Windland graduated Cum Laude earning a Bachelor’s of Arts in Economics in 1970. Her career included information systems management in the banking and telephone industries and as a self-employed realtor. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Systems and Data Processing in 1974 and a Master’s in Business Administration in 1988, all from Washington University.

Carol and Harry Windland
Carol and Harry Windland

Mr. Windland earned essentially all of his college expenses through a variety of jobs including washing dishes in exchange for meals, working in a traffic engineering laboratory and as a carpenter during the summers.  Mrs. Windland also held jobs on campus and in the dorm mail room as well as working during the summers. They are acutely aware of the conflicts that can arise between working, studying, and the pleasures of college life. It is their hope that this stipend will enable one student each year to focus on academics rather than on working and enable the student recipient to achieve an appropriate balance between all aspects of life at Washington University.

The Windlands sponsor an endowed scholarship and are loyal Eliot Society members. Carol has additionally given her time and expertise to Washington University through multiple volunteer roles with Reunion, the Eliot Society, and the Arts & Sciences Dean’s Advisory Board.

The Windlands live in Edwardsville IL. Both are retired from the business world and avidly pursue their interest in travel, having visited more than 180 countries.
