About Ethel MacLeod Hart:
When Ethel MacLeod Hart passed away in 1992 at the age of 104, she provided a monetary bequest of almost $1.5 million to the City. On recommendation of the committee, a permanent endowment of $1 million was established. The City was directed to use the funds for “use, enjoyment and comfort of senior citizens.”
In 1996, the City Council authorized the City Treasurer to invest the trust fund (Resolution No. 96-202).
This funding is reflected in the many services it has provided to local senior citizens, including the dedication and ongoing maintenance of the Hart Senior Center (915 27th St.).
