The University at Buffalo will posthumously honor Ralph Wilson, Jr. with the Chancellor Charles P. Norton Medal, the university’s highest award. The award will be given during the UB’s 168th general commencement on May 18.

The Chancellor Charles P. Norton Medal is presented annually to an individual who “performed some great thing which is identified with Buffalo … a great civic or political act, a great book, a great work of art, a great scientific achievement or any other thing which, in itself, is truly great and ennobling, and which dignifies the performer and Buffalo in the eyes of the world.”

Through the Ralph Wilson Medical Research Foundation and the Ralph C. Wilson Foundation, he established the Buffalo Bills Team Physician’s Fund to support UB’s Department of Sports Medicine among countless other philanthropic acts that will continue to impact WNY and beyond.
