Said Haaga: "In a legal career spanning five decades, Bob Mundheim has been a consummate lawyer and strategic thinker. He is not only a great role model but a great friend. It is very fitting that Penn Law is recognizing Bobís many contributions to the school and the profession by establishing a professorship in his name."

Haaga, who graduated from Penn Law School in 1974, is Executive Vice President and Director of Capital Research and Management Company, the third largest mutual fund company in the United States. He is also Chairman of the Board of the fixed-income funds in the American Funds Group and of Capital International Fund, as well as Vice Chairman of Capital World Growth and Income Fund.

Charles "Casey" Cogut, another contributor to the Mundheim Professorship, heads the Mergers & Acquisitions Practice Group at Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, where he has been a partner since 1980. Cogut is a respected advisor to numerous corporate boards of directors and private equity firms, including Aramark, Wyeth, Kohlberg Kravis & Roberts and Silver Lake Partners. He serves on the board of advisors of the Institute for Law & Economics.

In honor of Mundheim, who is ending his six-year term as president of the Appleseed Foundation, the organization will be hosting an evening reception June 2 at the University Club in New York. For further information, please call 202-347-7960.
