Argus Leader Media - News-Donor to USD says program misnamed

Argus Leader Media - News: "The university announced that the business school, which is getting a new building on the Vermillion campus, would be renamed in honor of Miles Beacom, Sanford's longtime associate at Premier Bankcard.

But the widow of a USD alumnus - who previously gave $9.2 million to the school - says her family's donation already secured the naming rights. Lucy Buhler, wife of the late Walter Buhler, wants some of the money back.

The USD Foundation, which oversees these types of gifts for the university, declined.

Now the whole thing is up to a judge."
