The 1960 Fund
Since the creation of an independent History Department in 1960, the department gift account has supported student travel to conferences and field trips, faculty development, and other departmental activities. Generous benefactors of the department fund this gift account because they believe in the core mission of a liberal arts education and the role played by history education. The 1960 Fund commemorating the History Department's creation raises money for the gift account to continue supporting the excellent history majors and fine work of the department. To contribute to the 1960 Fund, please contact Dr. Mary Scheer at (409) 880-8511.
