Download PDF for this date

A gift of $100,000 was presented last night by William Randolph Hearst, Jr., a trustee of the Hearst Foundation, to the Jewish National Hospital at Denver at a dinner at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

Mr. Leonard Ginsburg, president of the Hearn department store, accepted the check for the hospital, which is a free non-sectarian tuberculosis institution, one-third of whose patients are former residents of New York. Other contributions announced by the Foundation, totalling $650,000, were presented to the University of California, Oglethorpe University, University of Notre Dame, and the Los Angeles County Museum.
