MU recieves 1.5 million for libraries and scholarships

The University of Missouri received more than one million dollars Friday morning as a gift from Columbia residents Jo Ann and Willian Trogdon.

The money will enable the purchase and conservation of rare books and materials in several fields, including American exploration, travel and topography, and Native American studies.

Additionally, $100 thousand of that money will go to the MU School of Health Professions to create a new scholarship.

The scholarship will support health profession students with physical disabilities who hope to one day become health practitioners.
