DURHAM, N.H. (AP) - A recently deceased graduate of the University of New Hampshire who worked for nearly 50 years at the Durham school’s library gifted his $4 million estate to his alma mater.

While Robert Morin was known to live simply, he quietly amassed the fortune that was left to UNH following his death a little over a year ago.

Morin, a member of UNH’s Class of 1961, worked as a cataloguer in the Dimond Library for decades.

A majority of Morin’s donation, $2.5 million, will be used to launch a career center for students and alumni. Another $1 million will fund a video scoreboard for UNH’s new football stadium. The Dimond Library will receive $100,000.

UNH President Mark Huddleston says he’s inspired by Morin’s commitment to the school through his philanthropy.
