The Admissions and Alumni offices hosted a special visit recently from Hannah Major and her dad, Joe, who are decendents of Eureka College founder, Ben Major. They are pictured here with Dr. Wes Phelan, Professor of Political Science. Hannah is the great, great granddaughter of Ben Major, who is legendary for bringing his inherited slaves to central Illinois, freeing and educating them. He and several other abolitionists are credited with founding Walnut Grove Academy which became Eureka College in 1855.
