Major Byrne Gift Launches New Program in Mathematics

May 26, 2015 by Office of Communications

In honor of her late husband, insurance executive and philanthropist John J. (Jack) Byrne Jr., Dorothy Byrne of Etna, N.H., has committed $20 million to help Dartmouth attract and support the finest math students and professors.

 

“Jack was keenly aware of the power of mathematics to solve complex problems, and he would be thrilled to know that his legacy will support generations of mathematicians to come”, says Dorothy Byrne of her husband, the late insurance executive and philanthropist John J. (Jack) Byrne Jr. (Photo courtesy of Dorothy Byrne)

 

“With this remarkable gift honoring Jack Byrne, a longtime and beloved benefactor of Dartmouth, the College will attract exceptional new scholars who will apply math to important societal issues,” says President Phil Hanlon ’77, himself a mathematician. “The gift’s enrichment grants will draw the very best mathematics students to Dartmouth, and will enable productive faculty-student partnerships in research and learning both inside and outside the classroom.
