C. T. Brown Student Aid Fund
Carroll Brown was always a caring person. The arrangements he made for his bequest guaranteed that he will continue to care for UI students in perpetuity.
Carroll and Mildred Brown were married in Eagle Grove, Iowa, in 1941. They moved to Chicago and lived there for many years. Carroll retired at the age of 65, and the couple came to Eagle Grove to make their home with Mildred’s mother after the death of her husband.
Carroll became interested in the University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine after Mildred died of cancer in 1972. He generously supported The University of Iowa from 1973 until his death in 1978 at age 80. He left nearly half of his estate—a $1.5 million bequest—to the UI upon his death. At that time, this was one of the largest bequests ever received by the University of Iowa Foundation. A portion of that gift established the C. T. Brown Student Aid Fund.
By touching the lives of promising students like you, Carroll’s gesture of immense generosity and commitment will honor the lives of his loved ones and help ease financial burdens for UI medical students.
Congratulations on receiving the C. T. Brown Student Aid Fund
