LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The University of Kansas Endowment Association has announced a $1 million unrestricted donation.

The KU Endowment says Barbara Werbe Meek, a 1960 KU graduate who lives in Baton Rouge, La., has committed to a $1 million gift to the university. The gift is unrestricted, which means it can be used for any purpose at KU with the approval of the Endowment's executive committee.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/13mIu6W) Meek chose to give the unrestricted gift because it was the wish of her late husband, Richard Meek, who died in 1999.

The Meeks met at KU and were married for nearly 40 years. Barbara earned a bachelor's in education in 1960, while Richard received a bachelor's in 1958 and a master's in 1962, both in geology. He worked for Exxon.
