GREENLEAF, Ezekiel Price, born in Quincy, Massachusetts, 22 May, 1790; died in Boston, Massachusetts, 3 December 1886. He was educated at Quincy, and engaged in business in Charleston, South Carolina, and in Boston, where he failed. He then removed to his father's farm in Quincy. Inheriting some property, he invested it with caution, denying himself the necessaries of life and living like a hermit. He spent fifty years in Quincy, but after 1879 lived in Boston. He bequeathed nearly all his estate, amounting to $500,000, to Harvard, with directions to keep it apart from other bequests, as the" Greenleaf fund"; $3,000 of the income is to be divided yearly into scholarships of $300 each, called the "Price Green-leaf scholarships," and part is to be devoted to a special division of the library, to be known as the " Greenleaf department." In case the regents of the University fail to comply with the conditions, it is to be equally divided between the Home for aged men and the Children's hospital of Boston.
