January 6, 2012


Good Morning:

I hope you enjoyed your holiday break. We are starting the new year and new semester off right with the addition of Stephanie Feoli to the Board of Tulane.

Stephanie, who is director of the Zemurray Foundation, is an alumna and longtime friend of Tulane University. She and her family have been vital to the success of Tulane for almost a century. Evidence of this is everywhere.

Stephanie and the Zemurray Foundation have established the France Vintor Scholes Chair of Colonial Latin American Studies, the Richard E. Greenleaf Distinguished Chair in Latin American Studies, the Samuel Z. Stone Chair of Public Health in Latin American Studies, the Doris Stone Librarian and Professor of Latin American Studies, and the Samuel Z. Stone Chair in Economics.

In addition, the Tulane Middle American Research Institute, the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, the Roger Thayer Stone Center for Latin American Studies, the Tulane president's home and numerous endowed chairs, professorships, post-doctoral fellowships and dorms have been founded, funded or donated by the Zemurray Foundation or a family member.

We are so pleased to have Stephanie join us in this new leadership role. She, along with the other dedicated members of our Board, will ensure that 2012 is a memorable year indeed.

Have a great weekend,


Office of the President Emeritus, 1555 Poydras St, Suite 700, New Orleans, LA 70112 504-274-3638
