The Lubin Legacy: Celebrating 50 years at the Joseph I Lubin House


Palitz Gallery

February 9 – April 9, 2015


In 1965, the Syracuse University Board of Trustees met for the first time at 11 East 61st Street, thanks to the generosity of Joseph Lubin, a New York philanthropist who had risen from an impoverished childhood in Brooklyn to become a renowned accountant and real estate investor. His close relationship with Chancellor William Tolley led to a lifelong affiliation with the University. This exhibition celebrates 50 years at the classic brownstone, and explores the life and philanthropy of Joseph Lubin. Presented by the Syracuse University Art Galleries in collaboration with SU Archives.
