This fund was established in 1977 in memory of Harold Lefkoe, MD, College 1930; A.M. Zoology 1931; and MD 1935, with a gift from the Lefkoe Family.

Over the years, a substantial body of material in the areas of orthopedic medicine, rehabilitation medicine, and Parkinson's Disease have been acquired for the Penn Biomedical Library. His children, Penn alumni, continue to support the fund, which has grown over six-fold.
