About the Barnards

David and Kathleen (Kay) Barnard have been involved with the University of Wisconsin-Stout for over 70 years. Kay came to Stout as a transfer student in 1938. After raising a family she went on to have a successful career in education. Dave transferred to Stout as a student in 1940 and was hired in 1946 to teach graphic arts and audio-visual education. From 1970-1987 Dave was the Dean of Learning Resources (which included the Library).

Since their retirements, the Barnards have continued to play an active role in the development of the University, the Library, as well as the community. In 2009 Dr. Barnard was named the Outstanding Alumnus of the year for the University.
