LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The Hall Family Foundation has donated $2.7 million to support research at the University of Kansas' Hall Center of Humanities.

The Kansas University Endowment Association announced the latest gift from the Hall family on Monday. It said the donation will fund a new distinguished professorship and create two new research fellowships at the center.
