Donald M. Fox ’64, a Wagner trustee and ardent supporter, died on July 13, 2013. A Wagner history major, he started the H. S. Fox Corporation in Dallas in 1985, growing it into the largest reinsurance brokerage of its kind in Texas. Fox’s many contributions to Wagner College included serving twice on the Board of Trustees, 1985–94 and 2004–13. During the recent recession, he challenged his fellow board members to give students extra financial support. As a result, 10 Fox Scholars received $5,000 scholarships for three years. In addition, the Fox Family Fund for the Advancement of Civic Engagement Scholarship provided nearly $100,000 for projects involving a dozen faculty members and hundreds of students that benefited people in Staten Island, Bangladesh, Peru, and Kenya.
