Swanson, an emeritus trustee, during a May 20 celebration marking the completion of a $150 million renovation to the Benedum Hall of Engineering. The evening was hosted by Gallagher and Gerald D. Holder, U.S. Steel Dean of Engineering. In December 2007, Pitt’s engineering school was named “The John A. Swanson School of Engineering” in recognition of Swanson’s extraordinarily generous giving to the University and the school. (Photo by John Altdorfer)
