To honor the namesake of the Crummer Graduate School of Business at Rollins College and a Floridian who helped rescue the state from its debilitating debt after the 1929 stock market crash, third and fourth generation family members of Roy E. Crummer recently visited Winter Park to experience firsthand what he founded in 1964 with a $1 million donation to Rollins College to construct and establish a business school. Today, Crummer touts top MBA rankings from Bloomberg Businessweek and Forbes magazines and is the #1 ranked private MBA school in Florida.

 The family’s visit included tours of campus, Crummer’s former residence in Winter Park, and a reception with current students, alumni, faculty and staff. “Roy E. Crummer took great pride in giving back to the communities where he lived,” says Tom McEvoy, Dean of the Crummer Graduate School of Business. “Fifty-one years after his generous donation, we were honored his family could witness firsthand how his vision and commitment to higher education continues to shape the future leaders of Central Florida.”
