|In June, Penn Law held a star-spangled tribute to Howard Gittis W’55 L’58 as a
thank-you for his $5 million gift. Gittis cut the ribbon to mark the official naming
of Gittis Hall, which houses faculty offices and classrooms. In one of the four
classrooms, Penn President Amy Gutmann and Penn Law Dean Michael A. Fitts
praised Gittis for his support of the academic program. Following the ceremony
was dinner at Lec Bec Fin, one of the country’s finest French restaurants. In
attendance were Gov. Ed Rendell (D-PA), former Philadelphia Mayor William J.
Green, and Sidney Kimmel, chairman and founder of Jones Apparel Group, Inc.|
