The Fuqua School of Business is named for J.B. Fuqua, born in 1918 and raised by his grandparents on a tobacco farm in Prince Edward County, Virginia. Fuqua began his relationship with Duke University as a teenage student, when he borrowed books by mail from the Duke library. Fuqua never went to college.

The small brick manufacturing company grew to become a multi-billion-dollar conglomerate of business holdings. Fuqua’s cumulative giving to Duke totaled nearly $40 million, establishing him as one of Duke’s largest individual benefactors.
