TV host gives $1M to Northwestern

Bob Barker, host of the TV game show The Price is Right, has donated $1 million to Northwestern University’s School of Law. The gift will be used to endow a course on animal rights law.

The Bob Barker Endowment Fund for the Study of Animal Rights will allow students to earn credits on topics such as how human beings interact with and use animals, species protection and international wildlife law.

A longtime animal rights activist, Barker has given similar donations to law schools at Duke, Stanford, Columbia and UCLA.
