Norberg Family

Hans A. Norberg Family

The late Lillian Norberg was an ardent champion of education. At the age of 96, she chose to honor the memory of her husband by creating the Hans A. Norberg Endowed Chair in Electrical Engineering as a permanent source of support for a TU faculty member in the field of Electrical Engineering. Hans and Lillian's children — retired TU faculty member Anna Norberg Kestner and Dr. Mary Kathryn Norberg Hoffman — joined their mother in establishing this memorial tribute to their father.

Hans A. Norberg was co-founder and president of Nelson Electric Manufacturing Company and, later, president of Norberg Industries.

"My father was a distinguished electrical engineer; he was an active and prominent citizen of Tulsa; he was a committed Presbyterian, so a gift in his name to the Electrical Engineering Department of The University of Tulsa seemed to be the perfectly fitting memorial" said Anna Norberg, shown here with her husband, Joseph Kestner.

Lillian passed away in 2006, but through this endowed fund, her commitment to advancing education will continue in perpetuity.
