From the LA Times:
The University of Southern California will announce Wednesday its largest donation ever, a $200-million gift from alumnus David Dornsife, the chairman of a large steel fabricating company, and his wife, Dana. The Dornsifes` donation will go to USC`s College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, the university`s biggest academic unit, without restrictions on how it should be spent. ... A USC business major who graduated in 1965 and was a shot putter on the track team, Dornsife has deep family ties to the Los Angeles campus; both his parents were also USC alumni.
