Nors S. Josephson and Waltraut Abstein-Josephson Library Endowed Fund
Nors and Waltraut Josephson established the Nors S. Josephson and Waltraut Abstein-Josephson Library Endowed Fund in 2006 as an investment in the essential role the Libraries’ collections play in the intellectual life of UCI faculty and students. The Josephson Fund supports the research collections in Langson Library.
"I used the Libraries’ collections extensively while a Music Professor at CSU Fullerton and they had a great impact on my teaching and research," said Josephson, "so it gives me a lot of satisfaction to strengthen them for future generations of students and faculty." Josephson received his B.A. in Music from UC Riverside, and his M.A. and Ph.D from Berkeley with a specialization in music of the Catholic Church.
