The Culver Family Estate
The Culver Estate website honors and preserves some of the history of CLU donors Paul Dodd Culver and his wife Elenora Marie Van Ingen Culver, pictured above on thier wedding day.
Paul Dodd Culver traces his American ancestry to the earliest Puritan settlers in New England.
The website's four divisions (Family History, Primary Documents, Memorabilia, and CLU Affiliations) are replicated in CLU Pearson Library Special Collections, where the original documents can be found archived according to these categories.
The Primary Documents are of interest to students in several disciplines, but perhaps particularly in the disciplines of History, English, Political Science, Religion, and Economics. CLU students can access these documents to complete class writing assignments as well as to prepare papers and presentations for Research Conferences.
