State: FAMU chair filled by its donor

State: FAMU chair filled by its donor: "The administrators at the Florida A&M University law school were thrilled with the $1-million donation. Not only would Kentucky lawyer Shirley Cunningham Jr. create an endowed chair at the new school, his gift would provide FAMU another $750,000 in matching money from the state.
But there was a catch.
The new Shirley Cunningham Jr. chair that Cunningham agreed to fund in 2001 would be filled by none other than Shirley Cunningham Jr.
His annual salary: $100,000, plus benefits worth about $25,000."
