Alumnus Ernest (Ernie) Kendall (OAC '32) has created an endowment to support the work of Archives and Special Collections. The fund will assist acquisitions, conservation and digitization projects.
He has also contributed additional letters and photographs to the collection established in his name. The black and white photos trace some of Kendall's early years against a campus backdrop, including a snapshot of him at two years of age perched atop Old Jeremiah when the cannon stood — unpainted — before Johnston Hall.
The collection also features letters written to Kendall in his later years by his former classmate, the late economist John Kenneth Galbraith (OAC '31).
