Honoring a Legacy

Fred. S. Kummer (1929-2021)

The business Fred and June Kummer launched in the basement of their suburban St. Louis home was ultimately responsible for the creation of 1,012 hospitals and health care facilities, financial institutions, the Adam’s Mark Hotel chain, a ski and golf resort, and more. Shortly before Fred’s death in 2021, building on their long history of supporting Missouri S&T, where Fred earned his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering in 1955, the Kummers made a gift that has transformed the university and the communities it serves.
