In Memoriam: Vaike Radamus

Her award-winning design credits cover a broad spectrum -- from banks, shopping malls, health care facilities and theaters, to country clubs, trains, and airplanes. She was an interior designer at St. Louis Park-based General Office Products Company for 24 years, retiring in 1992. After winning first prize in McGraw Edison/ American Society of Interior Design (ASID) National Lighting Competition in 1981, Radamus established a scholarship fund with the ASID, Minnesota Chapter to advance professional design studies. Her work has appeared in numerous interior design journals. Radamus served on the Friends of the Goldstein Gallery Board of Directors and provided photography services, documenting Goldstein exhibitions and opening receptions. She also served on the advisory board of the Salvation Army Northern Division. The Vaike Radamus Scholarship honors her commitment to interior design. The Star Tribune carried her obituary.
