BDN Reports on Passing of Major UMaine Supporter Dick Collins

The Bangor Daily News reported on the passing of Richard “Dick” Collins, a major benefactor of the University of Maine. Collins passed away Monday, July 7. He was 77 years old. Collins and his wife, Anne Collins, both UMaine graduates, donated $6 million to the university in 2007. Their contribution supported $5 million in improvements to the then Maine Center for the Arts — now Collins Center for the Arts — and $1 million to the Memorial Gym restoration project. “We are deeply saddened to learn of the death of one of the University of Maine’s most dedicated alumni volunteers and benefactors,” said UMaine President Susan Hunter. “Dick and his wife, Anne, worked tirelessly to make their alma mater the pride of the state of Maine and beyond.”
