David O. Nilsson Endowment and Lecture Series for Excellence in Contemporary Drama

Created with a gift from Dr. David O. Nilsson, a retired special instructor in mathematics at the University of Texas at Austin. This endowment supports the acquisition of works by the world's finest modern dramatists at The University of Texas at Austin's Fine Arts Library. The endowment also funds an annual lecture series to feature playwrights, scholars, critics and performers speaking to their work, influences and issues facing the world of contemporary drama.
