The Collegiate School is renamed Yale College in recognition of Elihu Yale’s donation of books and goods. Over the years, his gift has been supplemented by tens of thousands of others. During the “…and for Yale” Campaign (1992–97), nearly three-quarters of Yale’s living alumni made financial contributions to their alma mater. “Gov. Elihu Yale,” 1717, by Enoch Zeeman.
