Purple Legacy Society: Continuing the legacy of John Purple Howard and his sister Louisa Howard

In 1882, John Purple Howard made what must have seemed to be a simple donation at the time. When his sister Louisa Howard asked him to support the Ladies Aid Society, he couldn’t have known that his $200 contribution would become one of the key building blocks of today’s Howard Center.
