Entrepreneur. Family Man. Patriot. Philanthropist. 

Ralph W. Hauenstein was many things to many people. From his days at the Grand Rapids Herald to the philanthropic giving that cemented his legacy, Ralph’s stories are still alive throughout West Michigan. Often the quietest man in the room, Ralph’s work and actions spoke for themselves. This year, which would have been Ralph’s 110th birthday, the Hauenstein Center, and our partners at the Gerald R. Ford Foundation, Library & Museum, invite Ralph’s family, friends, and colleagues to our stage to share their stories of the man they knew. 


This event also appears on the main events calendar tagged as academic, alumni, faith, hauenstein, leadership, president, and veterans.
