Wife of Anton Hulman, Jr. She was the heir of a fortune from her family's Evansville, Indiana cigar-making business, that exceeded her husband's Hulman & Company. Their assets contributed to great philanthropic endeavors that supported Hulman Field, the Terre Haute, Indiana international airport, and Indiana State University. Their most substantial contribution brought about a name change of Rose Polytechnic Institute to the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and elevated its stature to that of one of the nation's most prestigious engineering schools. She succeeded her husband in issuing the "Gentlemen, Start Your Engines" command to begin the Indianapolis 500 racing classics between 1978 and 1997. She, in turn, has been succeeded by their daughter, Mari Hulman George.
