Paul S. Levy L’72, Chairman of the Board of Overseers,
and Saul A. Fox L’78

Over the years I was troubled by seeing tax professors lured away from Penn to other schools. As I thought about this dilemma, I was reminded of the wisdom of “The Wizard of Oz.” Specifically the Wizard’s observation that all that remained between a Cowardly Lion and a courageous hero was a gold medal. The answer for me was readily apparent. For Penn Law to retain its best and brightest was a gold medal – with the word spelled “m-e-t-a-l” and the emphasis on ‘gold.’ Hence, the Saul A. Fox Distinguished Professorship and the Fox Endowed Research Fund. For the Law School I hope for more such gold from others to endow more of the same.

From remarks delivered by Saul A. Fox
upon receiving the Law School Medallion
in honor of establishment of the
Fox Distinguished Professorship in 2001
with the largest single gift to establish a chair
in the history of the University of Pennsylvania.
