Advancing the legacy of America's Darling
Located on the campus of Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, The Jay N. Darling Institute, communicates Darling’s legacy by inspiring others to make the world a better place. The Institute models excellence and elevates our ability to create sustainable change through collaboration and action.
It builds on a shared history dating back to June 7, 1926, when Drake University awarded Darling an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Law to recognize his cultural achievements. To preserve his work, today Drake serves as the home of Darling’s art and papers including the We Remember Him When exhibit.
