Arthur W. Diamond, class of 1926, who served as a captain in the United States Army Corps of Engineers during World War II, was a real estate developer and benefactor to many organizations. He worked with his brothers, Harold and Sidney, (a 1922 graduate of Columbia Law School), to expand their family’s real estate business, which included apartment houses and shopping centers in Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx. Before his death in January 1996, Mr. Diamond was involved with many charities. He donated funds to rehabilitate the Angel of the Waters statue in Central Park’s Bethesda Fountain and gave significant gifts to Lenox Hill and New York Hospitals. He and his brother Sidney provided funds through the Diamond Brothers foundation to establish the Diamond Classroom, located on the eighth floor of Columbia Law School.
A gift of $7 million has been made to the Columbia Law School by Miriam and Arthur W. Diamond Charitable Trust, of which Jack Adelman and Jay H. McDowell are trustees.
