Continuing the Berkeley legacy — gifts that span generations to serve others
This issue of Cal Futures illustrates Berkeley’s enduring reach across time — through generations of families, including two whose career paths focused on public health and service to others.
Kathleen Miller Ph.D. ’77, the late daughter of Arlene Miller, came to Berkeley to earn a doctorate in immunology so she could help people suffering from neglected diseases.
Marilyn Barkin ’69, M.P.H. ’89 returned to Berkeley for an advanced degree so that she could be an advocate for patients. The planned gifts made by Arlene and Marilyn will assist eligible students in forging paths to serve the wider community. Another planned gift from the estates of two alumni who graduated more than 100 years ago was just received and is now benefitting student programs, both old and new.
