With $6 Million Gift, David Copley Endows UCLA Center for Costume Design
Union-Tribune publisher David Copley, who just recently took his $33 million yacht to the Cannes film festival, and had his adventures written up in his own paper, continues on his extravagant ways. Copley has given $6 million to the University of California Los Angeles School of Theater, Film and Television to endow a center for costume design. UCLA says it is the first of its kind anywhere. The gift provides funds for the David C. Copley Chair for the Study of Costume Design and the David C. Copley Center for the Study of Costume Design.
