Fifty years after graduating from Colorado College, Robert Grant ’65 called his alma mater to make a significant commitment to the Otis A. and Margaret T. Barnes Chemistry Scholarship Fund. Otis Barnes, professor of chemistry, along with his wife Margaret Tyson Barnes ’27, established the scholarship.
