The Julian M. Gokhale and Donna (Medeck) Gokhale Library Fund was established by the estate of Julian M. Gokhale, C’52, G’54, to support acquisitions of books, manuscripts, databases, and journals as the Director of the Library deems useful to the Library and the University.  

According to the donor’s wishes, the fund supports the Penn Libraries, because the collections, resources, and services were invaluable to the donor as a history student at the University.
