The Ben Graf Henneke Society
Established in 2009, The Ben Graf Henneke Society pays tribute to The University of Tulsa’s President Emeritus, Ben Henneke, and his dedication to McFarlin Library. From his days as a student, Dr. Henneke spent countless hours in McFarlin and maintained an office there until his passing in the fall of 2009. Dr. Henneke provided steadfast support for the library during his presidency and also was a generous donor.
Membership in this premier donor society comes with a commitment of $25,000. Each generous gift, which can be paid at once or over a period of up to five years, will be pooled in an endowed fund that will serve to attract renowned authors and scholars to TU and to raise national and international regard for the university’s rare books and manuscripts held in special collections.
Belonging to the Henneke Society provides members with access to the university’s special collections department and invitation to select events at The University of Tulsa.
