Hank Ingram House

Hank Ingram House is named for Orrin Henry (“Hank”) Ingram Sr.

Born in Wisconsin in 1904, he moved to Nashville where he established himself as a successful businessman and philanthropist. He served as vice president of the Vanderbilt Board of Trust from 1952 until his death in 1963. His passion for the university inspired his children and their families to build upon his legacy and play key roles in Vanderbilt’s future.
