Brimacombe study room named for lifelong education supporters

On Nov. 7 the Kellogg School dedicated a quiet-study room in the Donald P. Jacobs Center in honor of a gift from the estate of Margeret Ellen and Stuart Homer Brimacombe.

As a testament to their support of Northwestern University and the Kellogg School, the Brimacombes designated this gift as a bequest in their will. Family members of the couple attended the dedication of the study room, which will bear the Brimacombe family name.

A native of the Chicago area and born in 1905, Stuart Brimacombe graduated from Northwestern’s School of Commerce with a bachelor of science degree in 1941. He often spoke of his academic experience at Northwestern with great pride and fondness. Margeret Brimacombe, a native of Minnesota, was born in 1915 and graduated from the University of Minnesota with a bachelor of science degree in 1937, earning her master’s in education from Minnesota in 1963. Mr. Brimacombe served in the U.S. Navy and fought in the European theater during World War II. His life’s work included brokering for the meat and paper industries. Mrs. Brimacombe was an elementary school teacher in the Chicago area, who was also active in many philanthropic pursuits.

The Brimacombe family hopes Kellogg students will enjoy the quiet-study room and use it as a place to find solitude and academic fulfillment. The Brimacombe’s love of education and learning never waned throughout their long, full lives, and family members say the couple remained young at heart during their entire life’s journey. Stuart lived to be 93, while Margeret lived to 87.

The Kellogg School is grateful to the Brimacombes for their generosity.
