The Norbert A. Lange and Marion Cleaveland Lange Trust of Sandusky Library


Norbert A. Lange was born on August 4, 1892 to Adolph and Anna Hauser Lange in Sandusky, Ohio. He attended the University of Michigan, where he earned three degrees, a B.A. in 1915, an M.S. in 1917, and a Ph.D. in 1918. He worked as a chemistry instructor at Michigan between 1917 and 1919 and then became a professor at Case School of Applied Science, where he worked from 1919 to 1934. Around 1945, Lange married Marion Cleaveland, who was also a chemistry professor.

The Norbert A. and Marion Cleaveland Lange Trust of Sandusky Library was created by Dr. Lange in his Last Will and Testament. He died October 12, 1972. Mrs. Lange augmented the Trust under the provisions of a Living Trust that she established on October 10, 1974, which was implemented at the time of her death, December 23, 1975.

In their own words as set forth in the Trust, the Library was to use the income from the Trust for "The promotion of cultural and educational enterprises in the City of Sandusky, Ohio, and the adjacent area within Erie County, Ohio. All such enterprises shall be open and free to, and for the cultural and educational benefit of the general public of said Erie County." The best evidence of the fact that this laudable objective has been fulfilled is the popularity of the many programs and activities presented under the auspices of the Trust during the past 42 years. The people of Sandusky and Erie County are now and will be eternally indebted to the Langes for their generosity and kindness.
