For more than 20 years, attorney Leonard Quigley practiced corporate law in New York City and held a pro bono position that made him happy—general counsel of the Archaeological Institute of America. In memory of their patriarch, Quigley’s entire family teamed up to create a fund to support archaeology at Duke. His wife, Lynn Pfohl Quigley, along with her children Matthew ’87, J.D.’94 and Elizabeth Quigley J.D.’94, Dan ’91 and Jennifer Quigley, Cannon Q. and Bruce Campbell, and Megan Quigley and Eric Gill gave $100,000 to establish the Leonard and Lynn Quigley Fund.
Now, classical studies professors such as Carla Antonaccio, Maurizio Forte, and Alicia Jimenez can bring more students on their archaeological digs. They depend on students to help get the work done, and students depend on excavation to round out their study of archaeology in ways that classroom and museum experiences cannot.
