Milt and Betty Waldron

Milt and Betty Waldron participated in Semester at Sea as staff members, parents, grandparents and friends. Their warm personalities have made lasting impressions on countless voyagers.

The Waldrons have been generous and passionate supporters of Semester at Sea, funding the naming of the Waldron Clinic on the MV Explorer as well as a field program scholarship (The Waldron Field Travel Fund).

In Memory of Dr. Milt Waldron

Dr. Milt Waldron, a beloved member of the Semester at Sea family, passed the evening of Tuesday, June 5, 2018, surrounded by family and close friends. Dr. Waldron was involved with the program since his daughter Cynthia (Cindy) Franquemont sailed in the mid-1980s. He sailed on a full voyage as the physician with his wife Betty in 1990 and subsequently sailed on 23 full or partial voyages since that time. “We added it up once, and we’ve spent over four-and-a-half years at sea,” Dr. Waldron once said.

Milt’s presence on Semester at Sea impacted the lives of innumerable voyagers and will be felt for years to come. Please join the Institute for Shipboard Education and Semester at Sea voyagers in celebrating the life of someone who was such a compassionate and inspirational member of our community.
