OCAD University marks the passing of donor Peter Ziegler. Peter established the Frances Lea Ziegler Scholarship in 2006 in memory of his late wife Frances Lea, who was an artist.  The scholarship is granted annually to a third year student in OCAD University’s Drawing and Painting Program.  The Frances Lea Ziegler Scholarship has assisted ten students to date. The endowment will live on in perpetuity as a lasting testament to Peter Ziegler’s generosity.
 
Peter was educated in Vienna, England and Montreal and worked for 32 years as an organic chemist-biochemist at the Research Centre of Canada Packers Inc. in Toronto, retiring in 1983.  He is predeceased by his parents, sister, and many family members, all of whom perished in the Holocaust. Peter is survived by nephews, Robert Alexander and David Alexander.
 
The OCAD University community extends sincere condolences to Peter’s family and friends.
