A gift of $1,000,000 to the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, by David Schwartz, prominent industrialist and Jewish communal leader, was announced today by Dr. Samuel Belkin, president of the university. The gift will be used to establish the David and Irene Schwartz pavilion of the new university hospital to be constructed on the college campus.

An earlier gift by Mr. and Mrs. Schwartz was made to the Einstein Medical College in 1959 when the psychiatry wing of the medical school was dedicated in their names.
