Nancy Susan Reynolds (1910-1985)

Description

Daughter of R.J. and Katharine Smith, Nancy Susan Reynolds continued her parents' philanthropic ventures throughout her life. One notable example includes the donation of $500,000 and 350 acres of land from the Reynolda estate to move Wake Forest University from Wake Forest to Winston-Salem. In 1970, Nancy Susan donated the deed to her father's childhood home, Rock Spring Plantation, to Virginia Tech for agricultural research and historical preservation. This location is now known as the Reynolds Homestead.
