So how did Calvin make his fortune?

(Story continues from "Read More")

After leaving school in 1964, Calvin became one of the first 10-drivers UPS hired in Baltimore.

And he never left UPS.

Determined to succeed at a time when the civil rights movement was just taking hold, he did an outstanding job, and promotion after promotion followed.

Eventually, Calvin was promoted into senior management and to the UPS Board of Directors.

But here is the key: He not only had a large income but he took advantage of the employee stock option plan to accumulate stock which gained in value as UPS prospered.

How meaningful is that donation?

Dr. David K. Wilson, Morgan State University President summed it up nicely:

"Morgan is so proud to call this son and daughter of the great City of Baltimore our own, and through their historic giving, the doors of higher education will most certainly be kept open for generations of aspiring leaders whose financial shortfalls may have kept them from realizing their academic dreams."
