Maryville in Nodaway County, Missouri — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
Welton Ideker Entrance
A lifelong native of Mound City, Missouri, Welton Ideker served on the Northwest [Missouri State University] Board of Regents from 1977 to 1983. Always a progressive thinker, during his Board tenure, Welton endorsed the Regents' vote to pursue alternative fuels, an initiative that would later lead to world-wide recognition for the University. Through the contributions of his son, Ron, and Ron's wife, Martha, the Southeast Entrance to Bearcat Stadium is named in his honor.
