Raymond Zoerkler died Saturday in Fairfield, Ohio. He was 87.
In 1962 while working as a geologist in Bradford, Zoerkler wrote a letter to the chancellor of the University of Pittsburgh proposing that the university establish a campus in Bradford. A year later, the first students were attending classes here.
Zoerkler worked for Pennzoil and Birdwell while living in Bradford.
