Webb Institute Receives Endowment For Professorship From Lester Rosenblatt

The Webb Institute of Naval Architecture, located in Glen Cove, N.Y., has received an endowment for the establishment of a professorship to be named the "Mandell and Lester Rosenblatt Professor of Marine Engineering." Lester Rosenblatt, chairman and chief executive officer of M. Rosenblatt and Son, Inc., naval architects and marine engineers, and a member of Webb Institute's board of trustees, contributed the gift to the college for its Centennial Campaign. Mr. Rosenblatt and his father, Mandell, founded the firm in 1947. It is one of the largest and most highly regarded ship design firms in the world.

The professorship is only the second such designated position at Webb, which is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its founding. The installation of a professor for this position is planned for the fall of 1990.

"In view of the long association of the Rosenblatt name with the maritime field, and the personal and business relationships that my father and I have had with many Webb graduates, I thought it appropriate and timely to have our name even more closely linked with Webb," said Mr. Rosenblatt. "Webb does an excellent job in providing the maritime industry and the nation with outstanding talent. I am delighted to help its fund-raising campaign in this manner.

The Webb Institute is the nation's only college devoted solely to naval architecture and marine engineering.
