They were major players in the debate over the future of Penn State Dickinson School of Law and when it came time to ante up cash, they came up big.
Lewis Katz and H. Laddie Montague contributed a combined $19 million toward construction of a new “signature” addition at the Trickett Hall campus in Carlisle, Penn State officials announced this morning.
Katz, one-time owner of the New Jersey Nets basketball team, contributed $15 million, making his one of the largest donations from a single contributor in Penn State’s history, officials said.
To honor that feat, Penn State proposes to name the new building addition in Carlisle “Lewis Katz Hall” and the new law school building in State College the “Lewis Katz Building.”
