Laurita L. and John Hugh Hill Fund

In March 1978, Dr. John Hugh Hill established the Laurita L. and John Hugh Hill Fund. Dr. Hill and his late wife were scholars of medieval history. They collaborated on numerous books and brought national attention to medieval studies in the Southwest. In order to perpetuate these studies on the University of Houston campus, Dr. Hill donated their collection of 400 volumes on medieval studies. He then established the endowment to ensure this collection's indefinite growth.
