The Meusch Legacy Society was created in 1999 as a way to recognize the generosity of individuals who have included Elmhurst College in their estate plans. The society is named for the Rev. Philip Meusch, who served as president of Elmhurst College from 1875 until his death in 1880.
Society membership is automatically granted to those who include the College in their estate plans through such means as a bequest, a life insurance policy or a gift annuity. Members receive a bi-annual newsletter that honors members' contributions and provides useful information about estate planning.
