While at the University of Missouri I received a scholarship established by a great uncle, L.L. Marcel of Kansas City, MO, which made it possible for me to continue my education there. The establishment of the Presidential Scholarship in Law was, in part, to be a "payback" for the assistance given to me. Campbell A. Griffin, Jr., Retired partner, Vinson & Elkins LLP

Campbell A. Griffin, Jr., J.D. ’57, was hired right out of law school by Vinson, Elkins, Weems & Searls, now Vinson & Elkins, eventually retiring after over 35 years. During his distinguished career in corporate and securities law, he served as a member of the Management Committee for nine years, and was the partner responsible for the establishment of the firm’s Dallas office.

Mr. Griffin found the practice of law very satisfying and rewarding. In 1991, he and his wife, Margaret, funded the Campbell A. Griffin, Jr. Endowed Presidential Scholarship in Law with the hope that their scholarship recipients would find the same satisfaction.

In 2017, the Griffins expressed their gratitude again, this time to the College of Natural Sciences, where Mrs. Griffin completed a B.S. and an M.S. degree in Home Economics (later known as the Division of Nutritional Science within the School of Human Ecology in the College of Arts and Sciences). The Margaret Adams Griffin Excellence Endowment in Human Ecology supports excellence in the study of Nutritional Sciences.
