Sarah Lawrence Gets $15-Million Gift From Barbara Walters

Barbara Walters and her charitable trust have donated $15-million to Sarah Lawrence College, the television veteran's alma mater, to build a new campus hub for events and student activities, Lower Hudson Valley daily The Journal News writes.

Ms. Walters, long one of TV's most prominent news anchors and interviewers, graduated from the Yonkers, N.Y., institution in 1953. The planned Barbara Walters Campus Center will include spaces for events, dining, and social activities and house Ms. Walters' papers and video archives, which she donated to Sarah Lawrence last year.
