$16 million Columbia University bequest disappears

‘Mining magnate Henry Krumb left millions to Columbia University in the 1950s, but you’d have to dig deep to find the cash or his legacy today. . . . Krumb’s wishes were to “make the School of Mines one of the best known and largest schools of its kind in the world,” according to a copy of his will obtained by The Post.’

But today there is no school of mines, no scholarships, no degrees, and no one filling the endowed chairs of mining. Reminds me of the Met scandal.

Columbia University mining program runs dry – NYPOST.com.
