Rev. Francis Wade, S.J., was a longtime member of the Marquette Jesuit community and Department of Philosophy. Arriving at Marquette in 1945, he became and remained a beloved professor and esteemed role model for students, a diligent and student-oriented scholar who supported other faculty while guiding Marquette’s Department of Philosophy to a position of significant stature. In 1988, the university received a gift from the Marquette Jesuit community endowing a chair in honor of Father Wade and in recognition of his contribution to the university and Jesuit community.
