1891 Fundraising

1891 Check to the Alumni Hall Fund

Anyone who has ever raised funds knows that every little bit helps. Documents like these that trace the process of fundraising for the original construction of Alumni Hall take that idea to a new level, with little pledges here and there, like this $5 one. We hope Lizzie Freer paid on time! Otherwise, her pledge is 121 years overdue.

  1. It’s not as little as it might seem. According to the “Inflation Calculator” website, a pledge of $5 in 1891 would be the equivalent of about $125 today.
