Barney and Eleanor Frommer Memorial Fund

Main content

Mr. Frommer recalls fondly his time "working my way through the Van Pelt stacks. I have wonderful memories spending time with the books." Mr. Frommer is currently Managing Director of Wells Fargo Equipment Finance and a generous supporter of the University. He has also served as an alumni interviewer for prospective Penn students and has said, "I am happy to give back to Penn any way I can; it has given me so much." His daughter, Kate, is a member of the Class of 2007.

The Judaica Collections at the Penn Libraries provide a rich resource for students and faculty. Arthur Kiron, curator of these collections said, "Mr. Frommer's gift will help us in our efforts to provide the best of resources for Penn scholars for years to come. I am grateful for his generosity to the Library."
