Historical Context:
L.V. Eberhard ran a supermarket chain, "Eberhard's" based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The company ceased operations in the early 1990s when they could no longer compete with the larger store chains. In the waning years of his business career, Eberhard made a great impact on the community with generous donations to GVSU and the John Ball Zoo.
