Charles G. Boyer
The Boyer Educational Trust was established by Charles G. Boyer. Mr. Boyer’s parents settled near Oxford (Sumner County), Kansas. The bulk of their parents’ estate was left to their two children, Thomas and Charles. Charles had little formal education himself and no children. He had an inquiring mind and a realization that higher education was essential. He felt the time would come when the Kansas farmer would be called upon to produce food for an ever expanding national and world population. Mr. Boyer invested largely in Kansas farm land. He left modest bequests to relatives and the remainder of his estate to establish the Boyer Educational Trust, which is divided among numerous schools.
