Joseph L. Mailman, a prominent businessman, was deeply committed to the welfare of others. A generous benefactor to organizations concerned with health and education, Mr. Mailman also actively assisted families fleeing Nazi Germany.
To honor his memory, his family has made an extraordinary gift to rename Columbia University's School of Public Health. Phyllis Mailman, her son Joshua Mailman, and daughter Jody Wolfe believe the School's mission of education and community service backed by scientific research is a true reflection of Mr. Mailman's spirit.
From this day forward, the concerns of public health and the name of Joseph L. Mailman shall be forever linked.
