Kemper K. Knapp graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1879. Influenced by classmates that included Charles Van Hise (creator of the Wisconsin Idea), Robert La Follett (former Wisconsin governor and US Senator) and Jean Bascom (daughter of university president John Bascom) Mr. Knapp sought to improve the lives of future generations of students “to cultivate in the student body ideals of honesty, sincerity, earnestness, tolerance, and social and political obligations.” The Kemper K. Knapp Bequest Committee has supported these undergraduate scholarships for many years.
