in Civil Rights
| 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7
After the ceremonial presentation of a $1 million check to
Dean Fitts, Evans noted that the Alexanders were wholly deserving
of this honor. "What the Alexanders did for this area,
for Pennsylvania, and for this country (more than qualifies
them) to receive this chair," he said. "I will go back to Harrisburg
and tell everyone that these are the kinds of things we
should be doing."
Sheldon Bonovitz, chairman and chief executive officer of
Duane Morris, lauded Penn Law School for setting an example
for its peers. "No doubt this will spur other law schools to do
something as great," Bonovitz said.
