In 2011, to honor a father who stoked their love of history and respect for civil rights, Boulder sisters and University of Colorado Boulder alumnae Midge Korczak and Leslie Singer Lomas donated $2 million to endow the Louis P. Singer Endowed Chair in Jewish History at the University of Colorado Boulder. Held by Thomas Pegelow Kaplan (Jewish Studies and History), this chair supports a distinguished senior faculty position in perpetuity, and adds substantially to the momentum and presence of the Jewish Studies Program.
