Download PDF for this date

A bequest of $425, 000 to Wayne State University by the late Richard Cohn, Detroit advertising man and publisher, will enable the university to construct a building to house its college of nursing and graduate school. The building will bear the name of the donor and will permit an appreciable increase in the present nursing school enrollment of 600. Mr. Cohn died in 1956. He was a large contributor to public institutions and Jewish causes.
