Vogelsteins give $10 million to Vassar to support arts, honor president.
By Krista Bremer
Last fall, the president of Vassar College and the chair of the school's development committee identified a top priority: Find a major donor for the new drama and film center before the president's retirement in June 2006.
Barbara Manfrey Vogelstein, committee chair, 1976 alumna and current trustee of the college, discussed the initiative with her husband, and they reached an unexpected conclusion – to make the gift themselves.
Their $10 million gift is one of the largest single contributions to Vassar in its history."
