True Chemistry

June 13, 2016


BUFFALO, NY - Emil R. Inderbitzen’s relationship with Canisius College spanned nearly seven decades. From diligent chemistry student to proud alumnus, dedicated educator, steadfast volunteer and loyal donor, ‘Inde’ as he is affectionately remembered, was always a beloved friend of alma mater.

Inderbitzen passed away in October 2009 but a new scholarship in his name ensures that his rich legacy lives on. The Emil R. Inderbitzen ’40 Memorial Chemistry Scholarship supports junior or senior Canisius students who major in chemistry and demonstrate financial need. The scholarship was established by Inde’s son, Paul E. ’72 and his wife, Marjorie M. ’72 Inderbitzen.
