A daughter will honor her father's love of books by donating $10,000 to start a special library fund at Kansas University.

Ann Jeffrey Kay of Stanford, Calif., made the donation to the KU Endowment Association to start the Balfour S. Jeffrey History and Biography Book Fund.

Jeffrey is the late chairman of Kansas Power and Light Co.

Each book purchased with the fund would carry a special plate that says: "In Memory of a Learned Man Who Loved Good Books."

Jeffrey graduated from KU in 1928 and from Harvard law school in 1932. He became KPL's board chairman in 1975 and died in 1992. Jeffrey and his wife gave more than $186,000 for business and law scholarships at KU.
