Julia (Shaw) Patterson Carnell was a daughter of one of Dayton's prominent merchant families, with her father being a manufacturer of threshing machines. When she married Frank Patterson she joined the family that founded the NCR corporation that anchored Dayton's business community for decades. They were friends of the local Wright brothers, and her son, Frank Stuart Patterson, was one of the early aviators who died testing a biplane during WWI. After her first husband's death she married Harry Gardner who was a banker and also worked for NCR. Julia is known as one of Dayton's greatest philanthropists, especially for her founding of the Dayton Art Institute and $2 million gift for construction of its magnificent, and now historic, building on Grafton Hill. She helped save Patterson Homestead in Oakwood, was a co-founder of The Dayton Foundation, a founding member of the Dayton Woman’s Club and a major contributor to Miami Valley Hospital.
