Remembering Virginia G. Stowers



Virginia Glascock Stowers

May 21, 1930 – June 5, 2021

 “Virginia Stowers played an integral role in the creation of both American Century Investments and the Stowers Institute for Medical Research. In the early days of American Century, Virginia financially supported the family as a nurse while Jim focused on establishing a successful asset management firm guided by the principles that have defined our company’s culture throughout our 63-year history. I know that her love and support while Jim built the firm were a great comfort to him. More recently, I personally appreciated her wisdom and perspective as a director on the American Century Companies Inc. board. She will be greatly missed.”

- Jonathan Thomas, president and chief executive officer of American Century Investments
