The Thornton F. Bradshaw Programs and Endowment Fund was established in memory of Thornton F. Bradshaw, former Chariman of the Board of Trustees of Claremont Graduate University. The endowment supports projects, conferences, visitors and other collaborative ventures in the Humanities.
Thornton Bradshaw was known primarily as a businessman: president of ARCO and C.E.O. of RCA. We at Claremont Graduate University also remember him as a teacher, a scholar and chairman of our Board. Passionately interested in the arts and in building a thriving, lively community, he was convinced that business leaders profit, as do their organizations, from the breadth of vision and the understanding of the hopes of people which the humanities teach.
