About Louise W. Stilwill
Louise W. Stilwill and her family have lived in East Lansing since the l960’s. She was born in Oak Park, Illinois in l926, and received her degree in Elementary Education from Michigan State College in l948. Her first teaching job was in Flint, Michigan, at Cook School. She taught there three years while her husband was pursuing advanced work in medicine. Her annual paycheck was $2600 which was a salary higher than the average being paid during l948-49 in the State of Michigan. “We lived in many towns in this country. This experience helped me to become even more aware of the excellence that we have here at Michigan State. Through this endowment I hope to help in a small way to perpetuate this excellence.”
