THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
Seven decades after the death of art collector Ferdinand Howald, his generosity lives on.
In the 1930s, Howald helped pay for construction of the Columbus Museum of Art at 480 E. Broad St. and donated artworks that formed the core of the museum’s collection.
A new donation, about $100,000, comes from a trust that Howald created to provide income to a youngster he took under his wing almost a century ago."
