We all know Claude Bonnell's Database (link listed on this blog, but how many of us knew he was a devoted supporter of his alma mater, the University of Delaware? According to this 2002 article on the University of Delaware's website "He has created scholarships at Harrington High School, American University and at his golf club. His endowment of The Bunnell Family Scholarship for science students at UD is now worth more than $462,000."
My curiosity was raised. How many other Bonnell-Bunnell scholarships have been created by generous donors? I spent a couple hours on the internet and found quite a few.
This list is by no means comprehensive. It only includes the ones I found after a short internet search. If you know of any not listed here, let me know and it will be added.
