Benefactors Dinner Proves Crowning Night for Myles Tanenbaum W'52, L'57

THE NIGHT BELONGED to Myles Tanenbaum W’52, L’57. At the gala Benefactors Dinner in October, Penn Law, on the 10th anniversary of Tanenbaum Hall, paid tribute to the man who made it possible. Myles Tanenbaum contributed $5 million to the building, which houses Biddle Law Library, classrooms, and a student lounge.

“Without Myles Tanenbaum, without his guidance, support and, yes, indomitable will there would be no Tanenbaum Hall,” Dean Michael A. Fitts told the gathering of alumni, students, administrators, and faculty. After Fitts presented Myles a gift, a retrospective video on Myles’ life was shown.

Earlier in the evening, Fitts thanked Stephen A. Cozen, founder and chairman of Cozen O’Connor in Philadelphia, for his firm’s $2 million gift to establish the Stephen A. Cozen Professor of Law Chair. It is the first time in Penn Law history that a law firm has endowed a professorship.
