Download PDF for this date

A leading Jewish family of Ottawa was disclosed today to have made a gift of $500, 000 to Carleton University after withdrawing an offer to give that amount for a medical research center at the Ottawa Civic Hospital.

The Loeb Foundation withdrew the proposed gift after a series of delays in acceptance by the city council. Bertram Loeb, spokesman for the family, said the action did not mean an irretrievable loss to the city, adding that the family would still like to donate a Medical Research Institute building to the city.
