Luella Nunes Bensing Chemistry Endowed Book Fund

This endowed fund was established in 1958 in memory of Mrs. Luella Nunes Bensing by her sons, Eric B.S. '32, Karl, and Orville B.A. '28, M.S. '51. The endowment interest is used to purchase library books, especially monographs and books devoted to special topics in the broad area of chemistry. These funds, used at the discretion of the department, supplement the yearly library support of the department by the University. Historically, these monies have been used to fulfill timely needs or the funds have been allowed to accumulate so that purchases have a major impact on holdings. Purchases are cataloged and housed in the library; however, materials can be permanently checked-out to the department.
