James Edwin Westbury: Founding member of the University of Missouri-St. Louis - St. Louis Public Radio

Monday, January 23, 2017

University of Missouri-St. Louis. Mr. Westbury remained active with the university until shortly before his death on Saturday at St. Andrews at Francis Place in Eureka. He had lived in nearby Wildwood.Services will be Friday morning at Schrader Funeral Home and Crematory in Ballwin.“Jim was a delightful and engaging person,” UMSL Chancellor Tom George said in a recent tribute published by the university. “He was a fixture at our annual Founders Dinner – reminding us all of what great things can be accomplished when people work together for the good of the community.”The birth of UMSLFor some time, Ward Barnes, then the Normandy School District superintendent, had supported creating a state-funded college in the St. Louis area and Elmer Ellis, then president of the University of Missouri-Columbia, agreed to provide an educational program if appropriate property could be secured.In 1957, the pieces began to fall into place. The Bellerive Country Club, a neighbor of the school district, announced its intent to sell its 128-acre, 18-hole golf course for $1.3 million.Rigorous zoning laws curbed interest from developers, causing the golf club to turn to the Normandy School District, enticing it with a reduced asking price of $600,000.It sounded like a good deal to the district, but there were still hurdles. That’s where Mr. Westbury and then-Missouri state Rep. Wayne Goode came in.“Jim was a financial wizard and Ward Barnes’ right hand man,” said Goode, who in 1962 was a freshman Democrat who introduced the legislation necessary for the transaction.“He’s the one who formed the financial plan that helped convince the community of the wisdom of this effort – first to pass a bond issue to buy the property and then to transfer it to the University of Missouri.”The new school opened in the fall of 1960 as the University of Missouri-Normandy Residence Center in the former golf clubhouse. There were 200 students and a waiting list. In 1963, it officially became the University of Missouri-St. Louis and now has an enrollment of almost 17,000.Educator for lifeMr. Westbury, who was the director of special services for the Normandy School Dist
