In the late 1800s, Mr. Johns Hopkins designated his bequest to create the nation’s first, research-based higher education institution. Since then, many alumni and friends have followed in his footsteps. William Polk “Bill” Carey (1930-2012) most notably embodied Mr. Hopkins’ philanthropic spirit with his transformative gift in 2007 to establish the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School.
James Carey of Loudon (1751-1834), the great-great-great-grandfather of Bill Carey, was a prominent businessman in Baltimore. James Carey was a Baltimore merchant, a member of Baltimore’s first City Council, and a civic leader who co-founded the Baltimore Abolition Society. A relative to Johns Hopkins and ancestor to a number of initial trustees of Johns Hopkins University and Hospital, James Carey embodies the very legacy of Johns Hopkins institutions, which was founded by philanthropy. The Johns Hopkins business school was named in memory of James Carey’s past contributions to Baltimore and society at-large.
In recognition of the Carey family legacy and the influence, it continues to have on the School's mission, research, and new initiatives, we are proud to invite you to join the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School Giving Society.
