The Donor

A native of Milwaukee, the late Evan P. Helfaer built an outstanding record of corporate and philanthropic leadership. From 1932-57, he served as president of Lakeside Laboratories and guided the pharmaceutical firm to a position of international prominence. Helfaer gave Marquette more than $4 million, including $500,000 in unrestricted support, $1.6 million to construct the Evan P. and Marian Helfaer Theater, $2 million to build the Helfaer Tennis Stadium and Recreation Center, and a major sum to equip the top two floors of the Todd Wehr Chemistry Building.

Many of Helfaer’s gifts memorialize his wife, who died in 1968. Marion Helfaer, like her husband, maintained a lifelong interest in Milwaukee activities, particularly the arts. Evan Helfaer died in February 1974. Rev. John P. Raynor, S.J., Marquette’s president at the time, said in honoring Helfaer, "We are grateful that he has bequeathed to us his hope for the future and his love for his fellow man."
