The Folwell Lecture in Political Science and Pre-Law
The Folwell Chair Endowment was established by the late Jane Folwell, an energetic volunteer and generous benefactor for educational, health and community groups and initiatives. Folwell's interest in political science and pre-law originated from her 30-year career as a Congressional staffer in the U.S. House of Representatives and in the United States Senate. Her husband, Frank, was a highly respected Quad City businessman and philanthropist who passed away in 1997.
