Auction to Benefit ISU College of Business
Set May 20 at Pond Student Union Building

    Pocatello – An auction of items from the estate of the late Mildred Cederberg Ames, a benefactress to Idaho State University, will begin at 6 p.m. May 20 in the ISU Pond Student Union Building Ballroom. Proceeds will go to the ISU College of Business for scholarships and other purposes.
    “We are grateful to Mildred Ames and her family for the generosity they have shown to the University,” said Dr. Carol Mahar, assistant to the dean for development for the ISU College of Business. “Mildred Ames was a remarkable woman, and this auction will help her legacy live on at ISU.”
    Prime Time Auctions, Pocatello, will run the auction.
    “There is a nice selection of Rare, Interesting, & Fun Antiques & Collectibles” said Tanner Hernandez, Prime Time Auctions.
Included in the auction are two automobiles, a 1948 Pontiac and a 1961 Lincoln Continental. Other items range from diamond jewelry and ornate sterling silver flatware to antique steamer trunks and record players.
    A scholarship in Mildred Ames’ honor was endowed at ISU in 2002 by her nephew, Ron Carlson.  Ames will be honored with a posthumus degree at ISU’s spring commencement May 15 at Holt Arena.

    Ames was born May 18, 1907, and grew up in Firth, Idaho. Mildred met Franklin Ames while she was working at First Security Bank in Idaho Falls.  They married and worked together in the jewelry business for six years until Frank’s death. Mildred continued to run the jewelry store for 30 years.
    In 1983, at age 76, she sold the business and enrolled as a student at ISU. She took classes until the age of 87, when failing health and failing eyesight force her to stop. She had accumulated more than 300 credit hours, even attending summer terms from 1983 to 1985.
Contributions may be made to: Mildred Cederberg Ames Scholarship, ISU College of Business, Campus Box 8020, Pocatello, ID 83209. Additional information may be obtained by contacting Mahar at 208-282-2491 or [email protected].
