FOR RELEASE: Thursday, June 16, 1966 NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C. ARTHUR INFORMATION Sarasota -A $100,000 gift to New College was made today by a friend of the college who already has provided major support for the construction of campus facilities. The gift Has from Carl L. Hamilton for unrestricted use by the college. Mrs. Hamilton, a resident of Venice, previously had given to the college funds which are helping to finance construction of Hamilton Court, a dining and student social center on the college's East Campus. In offering her new gift, }rrs. Hamilton said that she did so in a spirit of confidence in the collep,e and its academic progress since the admission of the first students in the fall of 1964. President John Elmendorf accepted the gift on behalf of New College and said that it would help to faculty salaries, stu-dent scholarships, and related operating costs of the college. -more-


-2"We are greatly pleased by both the spirit and the substance of Hrs. Hamilton's gift," said President Elmendorf. 11She has been an interested supporter of College almost since its founding, and she has recognized the merit of its program and its need for support. "Hrs. Hamilton has demonstrated great faith in the college in its early years," said Dr. Elmendorf. "She has understood, as have some others, that a new college faces unusual financial burdens and is more than ordinarily dependent on the generosity of its friends." Dr. Elmendorf said the unrestricted nature of Mrs. Hamilton's gift makes it particularly helpful at this time. The college, he said, has had several major gifts restricted to specific but a continuing need has existed since the college was founded for operating cash for faculty and staff salaries, instructional materials, library books, and similar items. Mrs. Hamilton, of a nationally-knmm business consultant, earlier made a major gift has been used to establish the Carl L. and Marjorie Hamilton Court. The court is composed of two buildings-designed by I. M. Pei. They are adjacent to the three existing student residences. Hamilton Court was begun in January of this year and completion of the dininP, room building is expected shortly after the start of the next academic year in September. The classroom building will be completed later in the fall. -30-
