Collection Summary: In an effort to save River Falls from the fate of other teachers colleges, that of remaining small and limited, President Eugene H. Kleinpell proposed a Foundation in the 1940's as a means of pulling the institution up by its own bootstraps. The general plan was to interest the community in building a fieldhouse for the college and the high school, so the slogan “Feed the Falcon Fieldhouse Fund” was adopted. This first campaign proved to be disappointingly slow in obtaining results. By the end of 1950, only $13,837.10 had been received.
