DURANGO, Colo. (AP) - A $385,000 gift for scholarships at Fort Lewis College has raised questions as it arrived 30 years after the donor died.

The Durango Herald reports (https://tinyurl.com/jtlqz6s ) that George Oliver Tiffany, who died in 1983, and a portion of his estate was recently bequeathed to the college.

Fort Lewis College officials say it is unclear what connection Tiffany had to the college and that the executor didn’t know either. There is a possibility that Tiffany or his wife, who died in 1961, attended the Old Fort Lewis Campus in Hesperus, but the college was unable to confirm that.

The Tiffany gift is the third major bequest the college has received this year. The estate of Roy Dalpra donated $288,000 and the Robert M. and Roberta Armstrong Barr estate donated $1.4 million.
