Wow!

Helen Gurley Brown, the former editor of Cosmo and bestselling author of Sex and the Single Girl, has gifted the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism and Stanford’s School of Engineering a whopping $30 million.

The two schools set aside $24 million of the donation to be used to endow a professorship, and to award grants and fellowships. The joint program will be named after Brown and her late husband, David Brown, who attended both schools.
