BOZEMAN — A retired Montana State University administrator and professor says he will donate $100,000 to the school's library in honor of his wife, who died last year at the age of 78.
University officials say 82-year-old Stuart Knapp made an estate gift in his wife's name that will provide books and electronic materials after his death. Knapp says his wife, Bev Knapp, was a strong supporter of the MSU library, chaired the Bozeman Public Library board and was president of the Montana Library Association.
The couple also have donated many of their several thousand books to the MSU and Bozeman libraries.
Stuart Knapp came to the university in 1978 and has served in a variety of capacities, including vice president for academic affairs and professor. He retired in 1999.
