Newton Jewish Philanthropist Makes New Gift to Boston University

Boston University has announced that George Sherman of Newton, noted Jewish philanthropist, has given an additional undisclosed sum to the university. The new $5,000,000 University Union Building is named for him.

His latest gilt was conceived in the hope of stimulating other gifts for the recently planned $5,500,000 Boston University Central Library campaign. The new gift was allocated to adjoining malls and a two tier connecting corridor which will eventually link the recently completed Sherman Union and the Central Library.
