In spirit of the words of Andrew Carnegie, Matilda Dodge Wilson donated her estate in 1957 to provide "ladders upon which the aspiring can rise," establishing what is now Oakland University. The OU campus has 1,443 acres with the historic address of Rochester, Michigan, and includes the National Historic Landmark, Meadow Brook Hall.
