Jay H. Baker W’56 and his wife, Patty Baker, have given $11 million to the University. Part of the gift–$8 million–will fund the Jay H. Baker Forum in Jon M. Huntsman Hall; the two-story forum will be the largest single space in the new building and a center for Wharton undergraduate life and activity. The other $3 million will go to support undergraduate financial aid.
   Dr. Judith Rodin CW’66, president of the University, called it a “magnificent gift” that will “significantly enhance our facilities at the Wharton School” and provide “invaluable assistance to the best, most talented students so they can attend Penn regardless of their families’ financial resources.” Twelve Baker Leadership Scholarships will be awarded each academic year.
