The Citizens League is honored to reflect on how the legacies of Wheelock Whitney and Dr. Glen Nelson serve as the foundation of Minnesota’s future.
Wheelock Whitney is remembered for his success as an investment banker, commitment to wellness and recovery, higher education, passion for politics, and involvement in the growth of major Minnesota sports teams. Among all of that, he remained a long-time member and contributor to the Citizens League.
Dr. Glen Nelson is remembered for the lives he saved as a surgeon and innovator in medicine and the delivery of health services, developing medical devices and solutions used around the world. Dr. Nelson, also a long-time member of the Citizens League, served as a mentor and advisor to many people, and more than 20 companies, forever changing the face of Minnesota.
Join us as we honor these two civic leaders through the eyes of those inspired by their leadership.
