25 questions for 25 years

Arts & Sciences Magazine marks the silver anniversary of Zanvyl Krieger’s landmark gift

To commemorate the silver anniversary of Krieger's gift — at the time, the largest ever given to the university — Arts & Sciences Magazine highlights some of these scholars.

In making his gift, Krieger expressed his hope that it would inspire other donors to follow in his footsteps — a hope that proved well founded. More than half of the faculty featured in the article hold named professorships, which are supported by donors committed to furthering knowledge at Hopkins and beyond.
