This fund was established through the 1969 bequest of Mrs. Hilda Grabenheimer Lazarus, in memory of her husband, Eldon Spencer Lazarus, who died in 1955. Mr. Lazarus received his undergraduate degree from Tulane in 1902 and his LL.B. in 1906. He served for many years as lecturer at Tulane Law School and as advisor to the Tulane Law Review. In 1949, Mr. Lazarus presented to the Tulane Law Library a valuable collection of books on Roman law, most of which had been collected by his father, Judge Henry L. Lazarus. Income from the Eldon Spencer Lazarus Fund is to be used to provide law books for worthy students exhibiting financial need.
