Speaking Out

Full Circle

The selection of Penn's Dr. Ralph Brinster for the Franklin Institute's Bower Award is fitting in more ways than one.

The donor of the Award was Penn's own Henry Bower, Wharton '18. He established the Henry Bower Professorship in Entrepreneurial Studies in the Wharton School. After his wife's death, he created in the Veterinary School the Corinne and Henry Bower Professorship in Medicine. His generous support of athletics, primarily baseball, is why we play on Bower Field.

Henry Bower touches Penn yet again in the choice of Dr. Brinster for the 1996 Bower Award.
