$1M Gift from Businessman and Philanthropist John Nau Supports Better Understanding of State’s History

Graduate students studying history at the University of Houston will have an opportunity for a deep dive into the state’s past, thanks to a $1 million endowment created by Houston businessman and philanthropist John L. Nau, III.

“I think if we are going to have an effective understanding of not just the mystique of Texas but the real history and character of Texas, then we’ve got to have effective knowledgeable teachers, and I see the graduate program as being the first step in that process,” Nau said, adding that he anticipated the fellows will pursue careers in education and other fields.

Thank you Mr. Nau for your generosity.
