W.M. Keck Foundation gives USC $110 million

ver the next few years.

In addition to the $440 million from Keck and other donors to USC, Tenet Healthcare is planning to invest $150 million in USC University Hospital, the County of Los Angeles will be spending $818 million on a replacement of the Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center, and developers will be investing $40 million in building the second phase of the USC Healthcare Consultation Center.

Board of Overseers
The renaming of the School is accompanied by the creation of a Board of Overseers to provide advice and counsel to the USC president and the Keck School dean on policies and operations, and to take the lead in raising the matching funds called for by the agreement with the W.M. Keck Foundation.

Sample announced that the founding chairs of the Board of Overseers will be Simon Ramo, a director of the W.M. Keck Foundation for 16 years, and his wife, Virginia Ramo, a trustee of long standing at the university.

A recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, Simon Ramo is co-founder and the "R" of TRW Inc. He has received numerous other national awards including the National Medal of Science. He has served as advisor to many government, educational and scientific organizations, and is a founding member of the National Academy of Engineering and is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Philosophical Society.

Virginia Ramo is a graduate of the University of Southern California from which she also was granted the Degree of Doctor of Humane Letters. She was a co-founder of the Ramo Foundation whose philanthropy has included the Virginia Ramo Music Hall at USC, the Ramo Auditorium at Caltech and endowed chairs, awards and scholarship funds at several universities.

"Success in this exceptional task will require people of exceptional caliber," said Sample, "and that is why I am delighted and grateful that Si and Virginia have agreed to step into this role."
