OU has received a $1.5 million gift — the first of several — to create a scholarship fund in the College of Medicine.
The series of gifts from the estate of the late OU alumnus Dr. Crockett Page is expected to total $3.7 million, according to an OU press release.
At the request of Page, all of his gifts will be aimed to the College of Medicine’s Second Century Campaign for Scholarships, according to the press release.
The scholarship fund will be named after Page’s grandmother, Kjeston Moss Hildreth, to whom Page attributed all his success, according to the press release.
OU President David Boren announced this financial gift at the December meeting of the OU Board of Regents, according to the press release.
Page graduated from OU with two degrees, including an undergraduate degree in chemistry in 1958 and a medical degree in 1961, according to the press release. Throughout Page’s medical career in the U.S. Navy, he specialized in family medicine and dermatology.
Page died July 3 at the age of 77 in Albany, Georgia.
