About Our Benefactor – Dr. Paul Robert Ebling

Dr. Paul Ebling

The HSLC Library has a name: The Ebling Library. The library was named after Medical School Alumnus Paul R. Ebling, MD ’55. Dr. Ebling graduated from West High School and received his premedical education at Lawrence College, Marquette University and UW-Madison. He graduated from UW-Madison Medical School in 1955.

Dr. Ebling enjoyed reading and found great pleasure in gaining further knowledge. The library was always one of his favorite places to spend his free time.

Through his estate, the family of Paul R. Ebling has given the largest private gift to the HSLC. This generous gift will help ensure that the library will be amongst the most technologically sophisticated in the country.
