  • Notes 
    • DES MOINES (AP) - Joseph Rosenfield, who built a billion-dollar endowment fund for Grinnell College, has died.

      Rosenfield died Wednesday at a Des Moines hospital of congestive heart failure. He was 96.

      Rosenfield was a lawyer, financier and philanthropist. He is profiled in the current issue of Money Magazine.

      Rosenfield was head of Younker Brothers Inc. during the 1950s and '60s when the chain grew from four to 20 department stores.

      Rosenfield grew up in Des Moines and graduated from Grinnell College in 1925.

      Rosenfield's wife, Dannie, died in 1977. Their only child, James, was killed in a 1962 automobile accident.

      Rosenfield is survived by his sister, Louise Noun of Des Moines.

      A memorial service will be held later at Grinnell College.
