A $4 million donation was given to enhance the study and performance of jazz at Princeton University, school officials announced last week. The gift, donated by Princeton University alumnus Anthony H.P. Lee, will go to expand the University’s ability to support performances, research, and teaching. The new jazz program is “an important and integral part of Princeton’s vision for the arts across the curriculum,” said University President Shirley Tilghman last week. The gift will support the Anthony H.P. Lee ’79 Fund for the Study of Jazz, which will provide resources for undergraduate and graduate research, coursework, and visiting faculty in the Department of Music and the Center for African American Studies.
