Tracking NU Family Ties
If your bloodline is deep purple for several generations or you attended Northwestern on a "perpetual scholarship," we'd like to hear from you. We're looking for alumni whose families have attended Northwestern for the most generations and who have the most family members who have attended NU. We'll publish the winning families in the Sesquicentennial issue of the magazine in 2001. In addition, if you were a student who benefited from a "perpetual scholarship" that was sold in the University's early days to raise funds and then was handed down in the family, we'd love to hear your story. Please send your Wildcat family tales to
