Obituary

LEVY-Leon. The Rockefeller Uuniversity notes with profound sorrow the loss of our beloved friend Leon Levy, a dedicated member of The Rockefeller University Board of Trustees and longtime University benefactor. We join all New Yorkers in saluting the enormous accomplishments of his life. His was an original and unique life. His prodigious contributions to society cut across many fields and disciplines. He was a brilliant and legendary investor, an erudite scholar and astute collector of antiquities, an enlightened patron of archaeological expeditions, and a philanthropist of generosity and distinction. His generosity, in company with his wife, Shelby White, helped shape many of New York City's academic, medical, and cultural institutions, including this one, where he created the Shelby White and Leon Levy Center for Mind, Brain and Behavior to further scientific understanding in the neurosciences. We extend our deepest condolences to Shelby and the family. David Rockefeller, Honorary Chairman Richard B. Fisher, Chairman of the Board Thomas P. Sakmar, Acting President Torsten N. Wiesel, President Emeritus and Director The Shelby White and Leon Levy Center for Mind, Brain and Behavior The Rockefeller University
