Paying it forward

IN 1948, when Evelyn Crowell was 12 years old, her father died. Her uncle, Albert Crowell, Jr., stepped forward to become her guardian and nurtured her into adulthood. Albert Crowell made substantial sacrifices so that Evelyn could attend Portland State College at a time when there were few African American students on campus. He also urged her to save money.
