Declines to Allow Her Picture To Appear In Print

Miss Helen Culver has made the trustees of the University of Chicago happy by the gift of $1,000,000 to the endowment fund of that institution.

Miss Culver lives in a very pretty yet unassuming home at 31 Ashland boulevard. While she has hosts of friends, she is a rather unostentatious woman to the extent that she avoids all publicity and has a steadfast rule never to allow her picture to appear in print and says she has had no picture taken for some time.

The gift is doubly valuable to the university, for it call forth another $1,000,000 from John D. Rockefeller, who some time ago agreed to duplicate any gift to the university, up to $2,000,000 dollars. The deeds to the real estate which compose the gift are to be made out at once and given to the trustees. The gift made by Miss Culver was  the execution of a long-cherished desire of the late Charles J. Hull, whose ward she was, to establish a school of biological sciences in Chicago. Miss Culver says she could think of no better nor more appreciative recipient of such a gift than the University of Chicago.
