The William F. Marlar Foundation
William Marlar owned a cab company in Denver, Colorado called
Bill's Cab Company, which continues to operate in Denver today

Marlar had a passionate interest in Space Sciences and space
exploration. Upon his death, Mrs. Freida M. Marlar, his wife, took
control of the Zone Cab Company and through it set up the William F.
Marlar Memorial Foundation, an educational foundation memorializing her
husband's interest in space by assisting scholars in the space
Following Mrs. Marlar's death, the majority of the assets went into the
foundation. The trustees, who administer the foundation, are also the
directors of the Zone Cab Company.
