LILLY, ELI : 1885-

Manufacturing chemist, philanthropist, and student of American archaeology and history, Eli Lilly was born on April 1, 1885, in Indianapolis, Ind. He is the son of Josiah Kirby and Lilly Ridgely Lilly. He attended local schools and received the following degrees from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science: Ph.C. in 1907, Ph.M. in 1935, and D.S. in 1965. On Nov. 7, 1927, he married Ruth Allison.

Lilly's business career has been spent with the world-renowned pharmaceutical company founded by his grandfather, Colonel Eli Lilly, in 1876. He joined the organization in 1907; was made superintendent of manufacturing two years later; served as general superintendent, 1915-20, and vice president, 1920-32; and was elected president in 1932. Upon the death of his father in 1948, he became chairman of the board of directors. He was succeeded by his brother, Josiah Kirby Lilly, Jr., (who was a noted bibliophile and philatelist in private life) in 1961, becoming honorary chairman. When his brother died in 1966, Lilly again assumed the position of chairman of the board and served until 1969 at which time he began a second term as honorary chairman.

The two brothers and their father had long been liberal--and frequently anonymous--contributors to public works. At the suggestion of Eli Lilly, they set up Lilly Endowment, Inc., a philanthropic foundation chartered for "the promotion and support of religious, educational, or charitable purposes" in 1937. Grants and gifts by that organization have amounted to millions of dollars besides the continued private donations of the brothers. Animal husbandry, woodworking, and sailing are Lilly's hobbies. He is also interested in archaeology and history and, strangely enough, his contributions to those fields are probably known to many who do not connect his name with his distinguished business career. Through the Lilly Endowment, he supported the archaeological survey of the Angel Mound prehistoric site in southern Indiana, now the property of the state. He bought and restored to its 1823 condition the farm and buildings of Indian trader William Conner which he later presented to Earlham College. He has financed the midwestern archaeological studies carried on by Indiana University and the Indiana Historical Bureau in recent years and in 1937 he wrote the definitive work on Indiana prehistory. He also edited Schliemann in Indianapolis in 1961. In addition to receiving honorary doctorates from Wabash College, Butler University, the University of the South, Transylvania College, the University of Kentucky, Union College, DePauw University, Indiana University, the University of Pittsburgh, and Kenyon College, Lilly is the recipient of many other awards.
