Milton Silver, EE'50, WG'52

It is hard to define the line between Milt’s role as a faculty member of Drexel University, where he served as Department Head of Management, and his ‘retirement’, to which he continued devoting his experience, knowledge and energy in developing and mentoring entrepreneurs. His focus is not only within Drexel University, but also within the Wharton Graduate Program. In recent years this has focused on technical startups both local in Philadelphia, as well as nationally and even internationally. He is also a leader in Drexel’s collaborative initiative. All of this was undertaken while volunteering as a Board member of his synagogue, coaching tennis and Little League baseball. Milt is also a founding member of the Wharton Graduate Emeritus Society, serving on the WGES Steering committee since its inception.
