U. of Missouri to Settle Lawsuit by Giving Hillsdale College $4.7 Million

The University of Missouri announced this week that it will give conservative Hillsdale College a $4.7 million grant to honor the wishes of a libertarian donor. University alumnus Sherlock Hibbs donated a multi-million dollar sum to the University of Missouri in 2002 for the purpose of establishing a department dedicated to Austrian economics. Mizzou’s failure to meet the conditions of the grant was the subject of a lawsuit earlier this year.
