Harrisons family gives millions to Georgia school

Posted: Updated:

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -- After giving $10 million last year to help fund a building that bears his name, the late Dr. J. Harold Harrison and his family topped that by giving $66 million to the Medical College of Georgia for scholarships.

The Medical College of Georgia Foundation board voted unanimously Saturday to create the J. Harold Harrison, M.D. Fellows Fund because of the gift from his estate and his private foundation. Harrison was a longtime member of the foundation. He led the foundation in 1974 and 1979 and died June 2.

The endowment can only be used to fund scholarships for students at MCG, which is part of Georgia Regents University, and for endowed chairs for faculty at MCG in Augusta.
