Donor Gives $3 Million to Purdue’s History Department

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP): Purdue University says it will create two endowed professorships in the history of science and medicine after $3 million donation to its history department.
       Purdue officials announced the contribution Wednesday from a donor who is remaining anonymous. Purdue President Mitch Daniels says the donation will be matched with $3 million from a presidential discretionary fund.
       History department chairman Douglas Hurt says the donation is the largest the department has ever received and will allow it to establish a specialty in the history of science, medicine and technology.
       Daniels says those subjects fit in with Purdue's long-established programs in engineering and technology.
