Kate Neal Kinley possessed a keen interest in music and performance throughout her life. As a young woman growing up in Ohio, she studied music, and at the U of I she helped to found the Alpha Chi Omega sorority in 1899 and served as an honorary member of the Champaign Art Club. Upon her death in 1931, David Kinley created the Kate Neal Kinley Memorial Fellowship to promote advanced study in the fine arts.
