A historic announcement is made today at LSU of Alexandria.
School officials and friends gathered in Alexandria to hear about the 6.2 million dollar gift the LSUA Foundation will receive from the estate of Eloise and Howard Mulder. That’s the largest gift in the school’s history.
The Mulders lived on Ashland Plantation, near the school, and were supporters of LSU of Alexandria.
The Mulders had already endowed a professorship in physics and created another in business, with help from Michael Jenkins.
Eloise was a graduate of the University of Colorado and Howard graduated from the University of Wisconsin.
