“How does your life differ from your parents' at your age? Both my parents were raised on a farm, like me, but without a TV and electricity for a while. I've got a TV in my room And I've never known what it's like to go to bed cold, cold room where you have to take a heated stone wrapped in a blanket with you to keep warm. My dad didn't have a car until -- I don't know how old he was—the family had a Model T, and they used it until it fell apart. Now we have four cars. My dad's a farmer—soybeans and corn—and my mom's a housewife. Neither of them was spoiled, and I know I am. I admit it.

“I think my father enjoys spoiling me because his parents could never do that for him. He wants to see me go as far as I can in anything I do, and he wants to make sure I have everything I need to do it”

Benefactor Hits Hard Times

Over the years Karl Eller has given generously to the University of Arizona, his alma mater. The grateful Tucson school has, in return, named parts of itself in his honor: The Karl Eller Graduate School of Management and the Karl Eller Center for the Study of the Private Market Economy, both in its College of Business and Public Administration.

Recently, Eller, 62, quit as chairman of Circle K Corp., a convenience-store chain. Now, the troubled company has filed for protection under Chapter 11 of the bankruptcy code.

Is the Eller name still one you would want on the door of a business school?

"Mr. Eller is a typical entrepreneur; they fall on good times and hard times," said Susan Wong, the assistant dean in the graduate school of nanagement. "And he's just going through a bad time."

Karl Eller was featured in Vol. IV No. 2, The Eller Chronicles, May 1990. pp. 53-55.
