Anna Murray and Charles Fremont Porter Endowed Library Fund

William Porter

The purpose of the Endowment is to support the Libraries' purchase of reference books in the fields of education, history, and music.

William L. Porter ('29) established this fund in memory of his parents, Anna and Charles Porter. Descendants of pioneers, the Porters participated in the westward migration and settling of the Pacific Coast Region. Anna was a member of the first class to graduate from the Ellensburg Normal School and Charles was trained as a miner.
