Ruth Hooper Memorial Fund
Ruth Hooper, longtime Newberry donor and family history patron, passed away February 25 at age 86. She believed the Newberry to be the finest genealogical resource in the region, and family history to be an underutilized source of connecting to history and correcting misperceptions of the past. She was particularly interested in restoring the under-remembered roles of women. Making a gift to the Ruth Hooper Memorial Fund of the Newberry’s Annual Fund supports the vital work she cared so much about.
