The passing of our Berdon Scholarship benefactor

It is with heavy hearts that we at the Rainbow Center must report the passing of Judge Robert I. Berdon, the patriarch of the family that established the David Daniel Berdon Memorial Fund that offers an annual scholarship through the Rainbow Center.  We are grateful for the legacy that the Berdon Family has bestowed upon our community at the University of Connecticut and offer our deepest condolences to the Berdon Family.

Justice Robert I. Berdon, Connecticut’s great dissenter, dies at 89
