The Givens made their home in Vermont, and Mrs. Given--the daughter of Henry J. Heinz, founder of the H.J. Heinz Company--was active in civic life. In memory of their father and grandmother, Mrs. Given and her brothers established the Heinz Memorial Chapel at the University of Pittsburgh. Mr. Given, who had founded an advertising firm and was the author of Making a Newspaper, went on to join the Heinz Company as advertising counsel and a member of the board of directors. The Givens endowed professorships at several schools, including Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Harvard School of Public Health and Middlebury College. Mrs. Given died in 1956 and Mr. Given, in 1957.
