University of Dayton Gets $2.5M Donation

The University of Dayton has received a $2.5 million donation for biology faculty research from the estate of a former UD professor and alumnus.

The Dayton Daily News reports that Robert J. Schuellein notified the school in a 1998 letter that he was making the gift. Schuellein died in 2011 at the age of 91.

University officials say Schuellein graduated in 1944 with a degree in biology and returned to UD in the late 1950s to teach and help establish the graduate program in biology.
