This Week in Temple History
April 4, 1985

   The Temple Times reported that the College of Music would be officially renamed in honor of Esther Boyer Griswold, Class of 1927. Inspired by a sermon featuring Temple founder Russell Conwell, Griswold designated the University to receive the largest single gift in its history at that time (valued between $4 million and $5 million). In recognition of the gift and to provide assistance to gifted musicians, the University established a $150,000 fund for scholarships and fellowships for outstanding undergraduate and graduate students.
