Barker funds animal studies

October 29, 2009|Associated Press

Former television game show host Bob Barker, who ended episodes of "The Price Is Right" by asking viewers to spay and neuter their pets, has donated $1 million to Drury University in Springfield, Mo., to establish a professorship on animal rights that he hopes will lead to a full undergraduate degree program.

Barker, who graduated from the small liberal arts school in 1947 with a degree in economics, gave the school $1 million last year to establish the Drury University Forum on Animal Rights, which led to an undergraduate course on animal ethics.

He has also has established endowment funds on animal rights law at eight law schools.
