May 5, 2006

A. Alfred Taubman, local philanthropist and industrialist, is donating $3 million for the development of the Damon J. Keith Classroom Building and the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights. The buildings are named in honor of U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Damon J. Keith. "We are pleased and proud that the planned new center at our law school will be named after distinguished Detroit citizen and federal Judge Damon J. Keith and that his longtime friend and civic booster Al Taubman is partnering with us in making this important project a reality," said Wayne State University President Irvin D. Reid. The law school will acknowledge Taubman's donation during the Wayne First Campaign on Thursday, May 25.
