Zaidee A. Schober Endowed Scholarship in Medicine
Zaidee A. Schober was born in 1910 in Seattle. She lived in West Seattle with her husband, Albert Schober, who operated an auto freight line. Mrs. Schober’s nephew, Albert Duane Bloomstrom, M.D., graduated from the UW School of Medicine in 1955. Through Dr. Bloomstrom, Mrs. Schober became interested in the medical school. She subsequently made provisions in her will to create a student loan fund — one for worthy students with financial need.
In converting this loan fund into an endowed scholarship in 2008, UW Medicine pays tribute to Mrs. Schober and honors her intention to support medical students at the UW School of Medicine.
