Art Weisberg, a regional business leader and a major benefactor of Marshall University, died Saturday, November 24th, at Cabell Huntington Hospital at age 88.

Weisberg started State Electric Supply Co. in Huntington in the 1950s and built the company into a well-known retail-wholesale distributor with showroom and warehouse facilities in six states.

His success in business led he and his wife, Joan, to become generous donors to Marshall, and two engineering buildings are named for him — the Arthur Weisberg Family Engineering Laboratories and the new Arthur Weisberg Family Applied Engineering Complex, which is under construction.
