$2M gift for University of Kansas

KSAL StaffSeptember 24, 2016

The University of Kansas has received a gift of more than $2 million for faculty development in the university’s department of chemical and petroleum engineering.

The gift is from John V. Bossi, who earned his bachelor’s degree at Kansas in chemical engineering in 1948. He died in 2015, and directed the estate gift to the university. A fund in his name has been established through the KU Endowment.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://j.mp/2dfjrVo) that Bossi was a World War II veteran who worked at Phillips Petroleum in Texas and Pritchard Company in Kansas City, Missouri.

Bossi later left his engineering career and took over the family farm near Arkansas City along with one of his brothers. He never married nor had any children.
