|The Mary Grant Charles Prize Scholarship Fund, established in 1975 by Ralph S. Charles, A1923, and his two sons, Grant H. Charles, A1951, and Ronald A. Charles, E1957, in memory of their wife and mother, is awarded to an outstanding undergraduate possessing the same creative qualities in the writing of prose and poetry as Mrs. Charles, and preferentially to a student whose writing reflects an interest in ancestry and genealogy.|
Mary Grant Charles (1896-1975), J1920, was the author of travel and historical pieces, short stories, and numerous poems, including the genealogical work The Lambs of Lanarkshire and Their Descendants in America, and Across a Covered Bridge, a collection of poems.
