The Gordon A. & Mary Cain Department of Chemical Engineering will benefit from a generous gift from one of its most successful alumni. Mr. Earnest “Dare” Campbell and wife Janie donated $75,000 in May to the LSU Foundation, establishing a charitable remainder annuity trust dedicated to chemical engineering.

Earnest Campbell graduated from LSU with a degree in chemical engineering in 1949 after serving in the Army Air Corps in WWII. He went on to work at Dow Chemical Company, from which he is now retired. Earnest and Janie Campbell are both natives of Louisiana. The two lived in Baton Rouge for many years and now reside in Destin, Florida.
