Louise Este Bruce '36
Louise Este Bruce's '36 connection to Calvert was established long before her birth in 1924. Her paternal grandmother, Louise Este Fisher Bruce (Mrs. William Cabell Bruce), and her maternal grandfather, R. Brent Keyser, served together on Calvert's very first Board of Trustees in 1897.
The foundation Louise received at Calvert endured throughout her life. Louise wrote about "the famous Calvert School, founded by a brilliant man, Mr. Virgil HIllyer," and kindly included Calvert in her estate plans.
She passed away peacefully in New York City in June of 2013, but her connection to Calvert lives on through her generous bequest. Each year, the Louise Este Bruce Foundation provides significant support year after year to the "innovative school of global fame" that Louise cherished so much.
