About

He further directed that the land might be sold and the proceeds held as the "Samuel Francis Pond Trust" to be used to further the specified purposes. The land was sold, and the net proceeds are held by the University as the "Samuel Francis Pond Trust" The donor presented $3,104 to the University for addition to the capital of the fund which, including that sum was $37,689 at 31 December 1994.
