Knox religious studies receives $2 million gift

From the Register-Mail:

The largest gift ever given by a living donor will help Knox College hire its first full-time religious studies professor in about 30 years.

The school announced that a female alumna from the 1960s, who wished to remain anonymous, gave the school $2 million toward its religion program. The full-time professor in religion will be the first since Bill Matthews left in 1983 after 30 years at Knox College.
