Louis W. Foster Resource Center

The Louis W. Foster Resource Center at Stanford Graduate School of Business was made possible by a gift from the Louis and Gladyce Foster Family Foundation in honor of Louis W. Foster, AB ’35.

Foster exemplified the entrepreneurial spirit as founder of 20th Century Industries, a company that revolutionized the insurance industry by offering low-cost insurance direct to the customer.
