Alwin C. Carus and his sister, M. Elisabeth Carus, grew up at LaSalle, Ill., and attended the University of Chicago, where Alwin established strong, lifelong connections that represented his deep interests in philosophy, science and religion to the Oriental Institute.
In their estates, Alwin and M. Elisabeth established charitable trusts that will make distributions to Concordia College over the trusts' respective 20-year terms. In recognition of these gifts, Concordia College created the Carus Professorship in Philosophy and the Carus Lectureship.
