V.V. Cooke Chair of Medicine
School of Medicine - Established 1975
The V.V. Cooke Foundation established this chair to support teaching, research and service in internal medicine.
V.V. Cooke Jr., president of the foundation when the gift was made, endowed the professorship to fulfill his father's desire to help many areas of need in the Louisville community, particularly education.
V.V. Cooke Sr., a Louisville businessman and philanthropist, was instrumental in founding Kentucky Southern College, that campus that later became the University of Louisville's Shelby Campus.
The V.V Cooke Foundation also has supported the George W. Pedigo Fellowship.
