Dr. Alfred Zweidler (1937 – 2022)

Alfred “Fredy” Zweidler joined the New Helvetic Society in 1976 and was nominated for Council for the fiscal year 1978/79. He was elected as President in 1979 and held this position until 1985.

While presiding over our society he founded the Maurice Rohrbach Fund for Swiss-American Cultural Exchange of the New Helvetic Society in 1982 and guided the Cultural Activities until 1996.

On behalf of our Council and Members I extend deepest sympathy to the Zweidler families.

May Fredy Rest In Peace!
