C.V. Wolfe Scholarship
The family of former UT professor Cletus V. Wolfe established the C.V. Wolfe Scholarship
fund to provide scholarships for students in the departments of History, Natural Sciences
and Theatre, and in the College of Law. The scholarship awards are based on financial
need and high academic promise. Mr. Wolfe was a former high school principal, and
instructor of government and constitutional law at UT in the 1920s. He also served
as a University trustee and chairman of the Academic Affairs Committee for six years.
Mr. Wolfe practiced law in the firms of Wolfe & Seeley and Seeley, Wolfe & Rodgers.
He later became a prominent businessman, as president of the Western Ohio Corp. (formerly
First Toledo Corp.) and founder of the Lima Lumber Co. Mr. Wolfe died in 1967, and
his wife Vera died in 1991. The scholarship fund was established by their son Frederic
(Fritz) Wolfe, of Perrysburg; and daughters Helen Minck, Marilyn Allison, and Martha
Farmer, all of Lima. Fritz Wolfe says the endowed scholarship fund seemed the right
tribute to his father. "Our father was academically oriented. Education was high on
his list of priorities, and he was especially interested in the University of Toledo,"
he says. "We decided that establishing a memorial fund that would support student
scholarships was very appropriate."

C.V. Wolfe Scholarship Recipients
Elmer R. and Gertrude M. Brigham Scholarship in Science
This scholarship was established by Sister Barbara Brigham of the Medical Mission Sisters (Philadelphia) in memory of her parents. In particular, her father was able to have a higher education because of the generosity of an uncle. Sister Brigham wished to create this scholarship in that spirit. The Brigham scholarship is available every three years to a Biology student (in other years students in other natural sciences receive it). The selection criteria are the same as those for the C.V. Wolfe Scholarship (described above) except that the awardee does not have to be an Ohio resident.
