image number:



George Hedford Dunn was a member of the IU Board of Trustees from 1828-1836. He was born in New York City and although he moved to Lawrenceburg, Indiana in 1817 he does not appear to have been related to the Dunn family of Bloomington, Indiana that sold land to Indiana University in 1885. The painting seen here was presented to IU by Mrs. George Hedford Dunn (the wife of Dunn's grandson). The painting can currently (2014) be viewed in the reading room of the University Archives, Wells Library E460. This image appears on page 48 of "Trustees and Officers of Indiana University: 1820 to 1950" by Burton Dorr Myers (Indiana University, 1951).
