The estate of a longtime University of Kansas art history professor has donated another $1.1 million to the university.

Stokstad was a professor of art history, author and former museum director. She died in March 2016 at age 87.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports  the new gift will go toward acquiring art history books, improvements and maintenance at the Spencer Museum, and publishing scholarly exhibition catalogues.

It also will support the Marilyn Stokstad Directorship at the Spencer Museum. She endowed the directorship in 2012.

Stokstad joined the Kansas faculty in 1958 and retired in 2002.
