Beuline Alexander Crawford, BA '50

Beuline Alexander Crawford (1928-2015), held an undergraduate degree from UB in sociology and graduate degrees from Wayne State University and the University of Detroit Mercy. She was known for providing scholarships for young people, stipulating that the recipients take advantage of their educational opportunity and also “pay it forward.” Crawford, who often attended the commencement ceremonies of students who had received her scholarships, said she honored her mother, who taught her the value of good fortune is having the ability to care and share with humility. Beuline established the Beulah Alexander Memorial Scholarship Fund in honor of her mother, Beulah Alexander.
