Wabash College established the William P. Kane Society to honor the hundreds of alumni and friends of the College who have, through the years, personified the traditions and ideals so ably articulated by Dr. Kane during his tenure as president of Wabash from 1899 to 1906. The Kane Society recognizes planned gifts that have been submitted in writing to the College, including trusts, annuities, life insurance, bequests, and gifts of IRAs and other qualified retirement plans.
Dr. Kane's tenure best reflected "the Historic College" whose mission he said is, "... to educate men. Not simply to educate the intellect, nor to train the hand or the eye or any other fractional part, but to educate the man himself." He went on to state: "Foundation laying is toilsome ... but it is this foundation work that the Historic College has largely to do. Its purpose is not to train men for specific functions, but for supreme function with the qualities of mankind—mental, moral, spiritual."
