Do You Elihu? | 6th Annual Elihu Day | Tuesday, September 27, 2016
Sponsored by the Yale Alumni Fund
Nearly 300 years ago, Elihu Yale made history when he donated nine bales of goods, some books, and a portrait of King George I to the Connecticut colony's fledgling collegiate school. By way of thanks, the trustees named the school in his honor.
Today, Yale students can "Elihu" each year by joining Yale's tradition of thanks and taking the time to send messages of gratitude to Yale's donors. The Alumni Fund's 6th Annual Elihu Day will be held at locations all over campus on Tuesday, September 27.
