A longtime donor to Washington University in St. Louis has committed a gift of $60 million to the institution, most of which will come without strings attached, to allow the university to pursue new academic opportunities, its officials announced today. James F. McDonnell -- of the family behind McDonnell Douglas Corp. -- will provide $48 million for a new unrestricted endowment and $12 million for two existing programs that support undergraduate and graduate study.
