“I’m delighted that my gift supports two talented Radcliffe fellows during their year at the Institute,” says Sidney R. “Sid” Knafel ’52, MBA ’54, an investor and entrepreneur in New York City. “I also have the satisfaction of honoring two wonderful women in my family.”
Knafel has established a Radcliffe fellowship honoring his mother, Lillian Gollay Knafel, and another honoring his wife’s mother, Mildred Londa Weisman.
Diane McWhorter RI ’12, who holds the Mildred Londa Weisman Fellowship, is working on a follow-up to her Pulitzer Prize–winning book Carry Me Home. Stephen Mann RI ’12, who holds the Lillian Gollay Knafel Fellowship and is a professor of chemistry at the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom, is exploring the origins of life.
