Portrait of Molly Wiley
Mary L. F. Wiley, known affectionately as “Molly,” was a longtime benefactor of Flagler College. When she passed away in May of 2010, she left a $2.5 million bequest to the College.
She and her brother, Lawrence Lewis, Jr., helped to establish the College in 1968 as a tribute to their great-uncle Henry Flagler.
Throughout the years, Wiley and Lewis contributed consistently to the College through both financial assistance and service, including two prestigious scholarships and several major renovations, as well as contributions to Wiley Hall, The Molly Wiley Art Building, Flagler Gymnasium, and the Auditorium. Wiley also served on the Board of Trustees from 1995-1997.
“She was an exceedingly generous person who had a genuine interest in the institution,” said Flagler President William T. Abare, Jr.
In a note to Abare in 2004, Wiley wrote, “Dear Bill, I am so proud of Flagler College! The ‘Little College that Could’ is the greatest! Love, Molly.”
