In memory of her late husband Edward cin 24, Isabell Larson established a fund with the Triangle Fraternity Education Foundation to provide grants to Triangles for engineering graduate study. Brother Ed, National President in 1947-49, was a moving force in the establishment and operation of the Building Loan Fund. In addition to his service to Triangle Fraternity, he served as President of the Society of Professional Engineers and as Executive Director of the Society at its National Headquarters in Washington, D.C. He and Isabell felt strongly that it was critical for the United States to enhance graduate study in engineering in order for the U.S. to maintain its leadership position in the developing technologies.
