Steve Wesner, president of the Goldstine Foundation board of trustees, talks about the $1 million gift to the University of Saint Francis for its performing arts center on Wednesday.

USF downtown building to carry Goldstine name

The University of Saint Francis' downtown performing arts center has a new name and additional funding to begin the process of renovating the building, university officials announced Wednesday.

The performing arts center, 431 W. Berry St., will be called the Robert Goldstine Performing Arts Center in honor of longtime friend and benefactor of the university, Bob Goldstine.

The Robert Goldstine Foundation, established after Goldstine's death in June 2001, made a $1 million gift to enhance the center.

Goldstine was trustee emeritus for the university's board from 1975 to 2001 and emeritus member of the university relations committee from 1995 to 2001, according to a release from the University of Saint Francis.

A longtime Realtor and Fort Wayne land developer, he was chairman of Goldstine & Son Inc., a commercial and industrial real estate company founded by his grandfather.
