John Simon Guggenheim Foundation The foundation has granted more than 17,600 fellowships to aspiring academics since 1925. Too many to compile a list on Little.sis - but the foundation maintains a searchable database http://www.gf.org/fellows/all/ with bios of many recipients.

Milton Hershey School From May 2013 press release - "The City of Harrisburg, the Hershey Trust Co., and the Milton S. Hershey School have implemented reforms in two separate cases that placed all three entities under the scrutiny of government regulators and law enforcement.



The City has agreed to settle charges of securities fraud, in which the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission alleged that the City misled bond investors about its financial health in various financial statements and a mayoral address. Two days later, state Attorney General Kathleen Kane said her office was ending a multiyear investigation into allegations of financial improprieties at the Hershey Trust Co. and the school.



In an analysis of the Harrisburg case, Ballard Spahr attorneys William C. Rhodes and Tesia N. Stanley noted that a “significant number” of municipal bond issuers fall short of total disclosure compliance. They said municipalities “struggling to remain solvent” should be especially careful about timely and complete disclosures."

Duane Sand This is a wonderful blog posted about the fund raising industry supporting tea party candidates. The irony is that most of the grass roots funds raised through direct mail, telemarketing and events are going to the firms handling those functions - and very few dollars are going to campaigns. In the case of Mr. Sand's most recent campaign he spent $800,346 to raise $676,391- and $705,114 was billed to the campaign by Washington DC based fund raising firms. http://theprairieblog.areavoices.com/2012...

@galbraith Great post! Amazed at how widespread the practice has become at SUNY. Salary supplements pop up at almost all public universities, but few go as far as this.

David R Smith Rumored to be Penn State's pick for president, an offer withdrawn this week. He has been placed on leave by his current employer, while "compensation issues" are investigated. Upstate paid Smith $363,537 in 2012. In addition, he was paid $268,923 last year by the SUNY Research Foundation. Money from that foundation is often used to supplement pay for faculty and staff on SUNY campuses. He also receives a monthly housing allowance of $5,000 and a car for official state business.

21st Century Fox 21st Century Fox was created as a firm separate from News Corp this year, and holds most of Rupert Murdoch's holdings in television and film. I've linked it as a child of parent News Corp - as the Murdoch family controls ownership, and many individuals have dual roles in the two corporations.
