Two-Decade Quest Ends with Creation of Alexander Chair
in Civil Rights
1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7

Funding for the chair came together this year when Rep. Dwight Evans, the Democratic chairman of the Appropriations Committee of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, secured a $1 million grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Another key development was a $100,000 gift from Philadelphia law firm Duane Morris. Nolan Atkinson, GL'69, a partner at Duane Morris and former colleague of Sadie Alexander, worked behind the scenes to enlist the support of both Evans and his law firm. In addition, hundreds of alumni, students, and friends of the Alexanders' helped establish the chair with their contributions.
