. NEW COLLEGE NEWS RELEASE FOR RELEASE: Thursday, June 4, 1964 NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C ARTHUR INFORMATION A scholarship fund was set up today at New College in memory of Leonard S. Florsheim, the former Chicago industrialist and Sarasota resident, who died May 22. The fund was begun when several of Florsheim's friends made gifts to the college asking that they be used in assisting students. In addition to making a gift to the college during his lifetime, the 84-year-old Florsheim was interested in having set up at Dew College a special research group to study human relations. New College President Dr. George F. Baughman said that the Leonard s. Florsheim scholarship would be used to educate students interested in careers dedicated to human relations. "Leonard s. Florsheim was the symbol of the student we hope to educate at New College. He was a creator. He founded a number of successful companies; he helped found the National Conference of Christians and Jews. He was interested in youth and in the world in which they would grow up, and was a vital force in the Chicago Boys Club. "We are most grateful to Mr. Florsheim for his own gift to New College, and for the inspiring life which we hope will help guide many young people in determining their own goals.11 Dr. Baughman said that a $100,000 scholarship endowment would provide a full annual scholarship to a deserving student. He said the first Florsheim scholar would be designated for the Charter Class. Each such scholar, he said, would be an out-standing citizen in both school and community, interested in the fundamental relations between the world's peoples. "Each one will be selected with the criteria we believe Mr. Florsheim would have set," promised President Baughman. ##
