Messenger - Vol. 1, No. 3, Page 20 Spring 1992 Recent bequests For more than 20 years, Helen Black Stewart, Delaware '24, '40M, taught American history at Wilmington High School. To further her life's work and to honor her late husband, E. Lyman Stewart, Delaware '23, Mrs. Stewart bequeathed $1.3 million to the Department of History. The income from the E. Lyman Stewart Fellowship Fund will provide fellowships for graduate students specializing in American history and support for students who have a special interest in the history of Delaware. The bequest seeks to encourage study in such areas as rural history, business and economic history, material culture, the immigrant experience and the history of women and minorities. A fascination with the ocean and the coast led Mildred Hargadine Harrington to donate her extensive seashell collection to the University in 1988 and, two years later, to bequeath more than $1 million to the College of Marine Studies. Mrs. Harrington's husband, Maxwell Plater Harrington, Delaware '50, worked for the federal government in marine sciences, serving as a civil engineer at Camp Lejeune, the U.S. Marine Corps base in Jacksonville, N.C. Before her death, Mrs. Harrington expressed her interest in the marine environment by supporting the college as a marine associate. Income from the Maxwell Plater Harrington and Mildred Hargadine Harrington Fund will be used to enrich the educational programs of the College of Marine Sciences.
