Learn more about Louise Hawley Stone who the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) named its largest building the Louise Hawley Stone Curatorial Centre after in 2006. 

Louise Hawley Stone gave much of herself to the ROM, serving on its Board of Trustees and donating numerous artifacts to various collections. Most notably, she established a sizeable legacy in her will, ultimately transferring $49.7 million (Cdn) to create the Louise Hawley Stone Charitable Trust—the largest bequest ever received by a Canadian cultural institution upon her death in 1997. The Louise Hawley Stone Charitable Trust was established for the purpose of building and promoting the ROM’s collections through ongoing acquisitions and publications.
