- In his memorandum sent to Drs. Howard and Bulger at Duke University, Mr. Keller sets forth parameters for the Tuition Loan program for the Duke University PA program. According to the letter, "the plan will generate sufficient cash to support the program beginning in September 1977. A deposit of $50,000 would be sufficient to cover any deficit during this time." Howard sends Keller's letter to Dr. Kinney on December 7, 1971 stating that "this is a key element in the long-term financial success of this venture and an essential element of our recently submitted proposal to HEW." He asks that a fund be created for this purpose.
