Brown Ink Society

Categories: Topics

This group was established by Michael Downs, shortly before his death, as an effort to honor Steven Hollander as teacher and friend of IPFW students. The society provides grants of up to $250 to academically deserving students faced with financial emergencies that would significantly but temporarily disrupt their studies. Members of the society are faculty, staff, and retirees who have donated to the fund. Brown Ink was selected for the name since Mr. Hollander was known for using brown ink rather than blue, black, or red in his editorial comments on papers and documents.
