In 2011, Thomas and Susan Abraham established the Anthony Thomas Abraham Collection Endowment Fund in honor of their son, Anthony Thomas Abraham, W’12. The interdisciplinary fund supports the teaching and research needs of a range of departments and programs that are focused on understanding the challenging demands for energy and resources, and on creating a new generation of professionals who excel in designing sustainable living and working environments. 

With this interdisciplinary focus in mind, the Anthony Thomas Abraham Fund supports acquisitions for the Engineering, Lippincott and Fine Arts Libraries on subjects ranging from science and engineering, city and regional planning, economics, business, social policy, and architecture.
