An endowment fund of approximately £15,000 was created by an anonymous donor, a Zionist residing in England, for the establishment of a chair for International Peace at the Hebrew University on Mount Scopus.

The chair is to bear the name of Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the World Zionist Organization. The donor has presented to the board of governors of the Hebrew University a block of 15,000 7½% cumulative preference shares of a well-known public company.

Dr. Weizmann, informed here of the endowment, sent a cable accepting the gift and expressing his pleasure that the chair would be established in his name.
