JOSEPH P. DELAMAR
In 1922, the Joseph DeLamar Institute of Public Health, the precursor to today’s Mailman School of Public Health, was founded with a $3 million bequest from Joseph DeLamar (1843-1918), a Dutch born sea captain, industrialist, and champion of public health education. After the Institute’s upgrade to a standalone school in 1945, the DeLamar Professorship of Public Health was established, a chair currently held by Dean and DeLamar Professor Linda P. Fried.
