        Simeon Benjamin

        Simeon Benjamin was born on Long Island in 1792. He moved to Elmira, NY and began investing his hard-earned fortune in this growing community. He believed that women deserved an equal chance at higher education, and used his influence and financial backing to locate the new female college. He donated nearly $80,000 to the school helping to keep tuition low and the doors open during hard times.
