William and Mary receives $3 million donation

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) – A former College of William and Mary rector and his wife have donated $3 million to establish a law school scholarship fund at the school.

Henry C. Wolf and Dixie Davis Wolf are creating the 1779 Scholars Fund.

Henry C. Wolf received a bachelor’s degree in economics in 1964 from the university and in 1966 received his law degree from its law school. Wolf was first appointed to William and Mary’s governing body in 2003, and was reappointed in 2007. He was vice rector for two years, and then served a two-year term as rector until July 2011.

In 2007, the law school named its renovated and expanded law library as the Wolf Law Library, in recognition of a gift made by the Wolfs in honor of Anne Wolf.
