Nina Lane Dunn

The late Evans H. Dunn (BS ’42) was a proud alumnus and golf letterman of The University of Tulsa. His interest in Golden Hurricane Athletics continued long after he graduated, and he shared his enthusiasm with his wife, the late Nina Lane Dunn. Mr. and Mrs. Dunn were avid fans and generous supporters of TU Athletics during their lives, and Mrs. Dunn made arrangements to support the basketball program in perpetuity by establishing a planned gift in 1997.

In 2006, this estate gift funded the Evans and Nina Dunn Head Basketball Coaches Fund, an endowment that supports the hiring and retention of quality head basketball coaches for TU. When she established this planned gift, she stressed the importance of making this investment in TU: “Since we first spoke, we have lost another basketball coach, making it all the more important that this be done.” Mr. and Mrs. Dunn’s enthusiasm will continue to create opportunities for the TU Basketball Program for many years to come.
