Editorial: Healthy dose of cash just what the doctor ordered

Northwestern got a shot in the arm with the announcement of a $75 million donation earmarked for the Medical School’s endowment. In honor of the gift from the Joseph and Bessie Feinberg Foundation, the school will be named the Feinberg Medical School. We commend the foundation’s generosity in donating the largest gift in NU history.

Unlike the university’s decision to rename Harris 107 “The Accenture Forum” for a corporation, we have no aversion to naming buildings or schools after charitable foundations. In this case, the foundation’s president, Reuben Feinberg, has been a regular donor since finding himself in the emergency room at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in 1987 and is allowing the Medical School complete discretion as to how it spends this gift.

The Weinbergs already took our college of arts and sciences. But if there’s a Steinberg foundation out there, perhaps we could interest you in a music building or a student union.
