Smithsonian Questions $5 Million In Oil Money

November 5, 2007 § 1 Comment

Wow!  The Smithsonian is actually questioning whether or not to except a $5 million donation because the interests of the Smithsonian and those of the source of the donation might not be consistent with each other.  I wonder whether or not other arts organizations would be as responsible before accepting such a hefty gift.

    Very interesting. My aunt-in-law also told me a story about how she gained at $3 million dollar grant for a university, and then had to give it back because it was from Phillip Morris. Ouch.
