Commemoration of Charles E. Merrill, Jr., and Celebrating 50 Years of Merrill College

Time: Saturday, April 28, 2018 4:00 PM - 4:30 PM PDT

Location: Merrill Cultural Center

Merrill College was founded 50 years ago with a generous gift from Charles E. Merrill, Jr., who died November 30, 2017 at age 97. A dedicated proponent of educational access–an interest his namesake college shares–he also contributed to historically black universities and colleges and to schools in the former Eastern Bloc. Charles Merrill last visited the college twenty years ago during its 30th anniversary year, and remained a dedicated and unwavering friend to the college he helped found. Provost Elizabeth Abrams will preside as we formally celebrate the 50th anniversary of the college and commemorate our influential founder.
