KU law school, athletics to split $3.5 million gift evenly

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A $3.5 million gift from a University of Kansas alumna and her late husband will be split evenly between the university’s law school and Kansas Athletics.

The gift from Nancy Winter and Wint Winter Sr. will provide an unrestricted $1.75 million to the law school and add the same amount to the existing Winter Family Scholarship Fund in Kansas Athletics.

Wint Winter Sr. is a Lawrence native who played football for Kansas and completed an undergraduate degree in business in 1952. After serving in the Marine Corps in Korea, Winter returned to Lawrence to go to law school and graduated in 1956.

Nancy Winter studied theater at KU and started a small community theater in Ottawa soon after she and her husband moved there after his graduation from law school.
