Around Cal

Berkeley Magazine, Summer 1999


California business leader and philanthropist Richard Goldman was honored with the Chancellor's Award for his long record of accomplishments, locally and globally. The award, along with three others to 13 alumni, was presented recently by the UC Berkeley Foundation.

Goldman, who is a 1941 Cal graduate, and his late wife, Rhoda, are probably best known for their 1990 establishment of the Goldman Prize, which annually honors six environmental heroes from around the world. The media widely regards the prize as the highest award for environmental work.

Among the Goldmans' contributions to Berkeley were gifts to expand the Incentive Awards Program, establish distinguished professorships in the College of Letters & Science and renovate Edwards Stadium. Their biggest gift to the campus came in 1997 -- $10 million to the public policy school that now bears their name.
