Eugene Lang, class of 1938, is in a race against time to give away as much money as possible. Fifteen years after giving Swarthmore its previous largest gift–$30 million–the philanthropist is re-upping for $50 million, most of which will go toward science and engineering. Before he got into the giving business, the Swarthmore cash machine (he’s given at least $100 million in total) made his fortune in part by developing ATM patents. Lang, who’s already got three campus buildings named after him, says he doesn’t “intend to die with money in the bank.” [Inquirer]
