Five for Friday: Neil Theobald

September 17, 2015 – In The News

Murray H. Shusterman was featured in the PhillyVoice article, “Five for Friday: Neil Theobald.” Full text can be found in the September 17, 2015, issue, but a synopsis is below.

Temple University President Neil Theobald was recently interviewed by PhillyVoice. Asked which Temple grad he most admires, Theobald said:

“At our football games, I always love sitting with our alums and catching up on their lives and telling them what is happening at Temple. At our season-opener with Penn State, I sat next to Murray Shusterman, Temple Class of ’33 and Temple Law Class of ’36. Last week, Murray had his 103rd birthday, and he is among the most upbeat, interesting, determined and smart people I know. Until recently, he taught law classes for his alma mater and served as a trustee. He gives back to the community in numerous ways. The most notable to me is that Murray funded the renovation of a beautiful Greek church on campus that keeps alive our connection to 19th-century Philadelphia. I can’t wait to see him at homecoming.”
