Louis and Claudia Schatanoff Fund
About the Donors
In 1986 David Schatanoff, Class of 1959, established this endowment in the name of his parents. Schatanoff was a chemistry major at the College and became a physician. In addition to establishing this fund, he has also supported the College’s science programs with gifts to Biology, Chemistry and Physics for the purchase of scientific equipment.
Louis Schatanoff (1905-1959) was born in Russia and came to the US at the age of one year. He became a naturalized US citizen in 1931, and practiced medicine in New Freedom Township, Pennsylvania, until his death. He and his wife Claudia (1904-1986) had two sons, Joseph and David, Class of 1959, both of whom also became doctors.
David Schatanoff’s daughter, Sandra Schatanoff, is also a Gettysburg graduate, Class of 1997.
