Joseph Trachtman, Esq., College 1922, and his wife Anne made a generous bequest to the University of Pennsylvania Library to support materials for undergraduates. 

Mr. Trachtman's law practice specialized in wills, trusts, and estates, and he was the author of Estate Planning, published by the Practicing Law Institute. He understood that bequests from individuals are critical in meeting Penn's educational and research needs.

The generosity of the Trachtmans, like that of so many Penn graduates, provides support for the students of today and tomorrow at the Penn Libraries.
