He was influential in the founding of Northern Kentucky University, the moving of Chase College of Law to NKU and the creation of the Kenton County Public Library. He and his wife Mary, who was the first Republican woman in Northern Kentucky to run for office in 1959, were celebrated for their charity and civic work.
