Wichita State gets $4M gift for anthropology

July 17, 2010


— Wichita State University’s Department of Anthropology is getting a $4 million gift from a late businessman.

David Jackman died in January 2009 and bequeathed the money to the WSU Foundation for the David and Sally Jackman Endowment for Anthropology.

Foundation President and CEO Elizabeth King says Jackman was an early supporter of the Holmes Museum of Anthropology during its renovation.

The endowment will fund such things as experiments, training, equipment and scholarships.

Jackman was co-owner and secretary of Wichita-based Oil Producers Inc. of Kansas and served as chairman of the board until his death.
