LAREDO, Texas (AP) - A Laredo businessman who donated land for the campus of Texas A&M International University has died at age 97.
Radcliffe Killam died Saturday.
University President Ray Keck says Killam always felt that education was key to prosperity for the Laredo region.
Killam was born into a Laredo oil family and attended the University of Texas at Austin before graduating from Harvard Law School and serving a stint in the Navy.
The Killams donated 300 acres of land that made possible the campus of Texas A&M International. They also pledged two million dollars for the university's Center for the Study of Western Hemispheric Trade.
A memorial service is planned for Tuesday at the Killam Company office in Laredo.
