Who was Mr. Sherman?  Here's background:

Founder of Standard Register, John Q. Sherman was a leading philanthropist in Dayton, Ohio with a deep commitment to healthcare and his community. At the onset of the Great Depression in 1928, he led the campaign to raise over one million dollars in just 30 days to build Good Samaritan Hospital. He left a legacy that lives on today through the company’s support of Dayton’s Samaritan Homeless Clinic, in the launching of and now through the John Q. Sherman Award program.
