"Announcement of the additional money came at a Statehouse news conference that marked the separation of Conner Prairie and Earlham, the Quaker college in Richmond that had served as the museum's governing trustee since the 1960s.
Conner Prairie and Earlham had wrestled for years over the museum's autonomy and control of a sizable endowment left to both parties by the late grandson of Eli Lilly, founder of drug maker Eli Lilly and Co. The dispute had thrown into doubt the fate of one of Indiana's most popular historic attractions and laid bare growing tensions between Conner Prairie officials and Earlham."
