Transcribed biography of Richard H. Laube


The Laube family arrived in Valparaiso from St. Peter, Minnesota in 1957 in order for the breadwinner to become a faculty member at Valparaiso University. Both parents, however, had earlier exposure to the city as undergraduate students on the VU campus. The state of Iowa is the mother's home, while the father was born in Kankakee Illinois.

The family has four female offspring: Patricia (now Mrs. Roger D. Sims of Munster with three children), Lois (serving as a reference librarian at the main library in Indianapolis), Mary (now Mrs. William D. Davis of Valparaiso with one child and is a teacher in a local day-care unit), and Marie (now Mrs. Rudy Higgins, no children, an elementary teacher in the Lowell, Indiana, system). All four girls are Valparaiso University graduates.

Our mother, Ruth, is a teacher in the business department of the local high school. She is active in PEO, Faculty Women's Club, the University Guild and Immanuel Lutheran Church and a VU graduate.

Our father, Dick, is now serving as Dean, College of Business Administration, Valparaiso University. He is a vice president of the Rotary Club, chairman of the (city) Board of Zoning Appeals. Chamber of Commerce member, and Porter County Bicentennial committee member. In addition to the VU undergraduate degree, he holds a Masters Degree from the University of Minnesota and a Ph. D. from the University of Nebraska.
