— A third generation University of Kansas Law School graduate wants to help aspiring attorneys pay for their educations.

Attorney and commercial real estate investor Beau Gould of Seattle and his wife, Julie Gould, have donated $1 million to the law school. The university announced Tuesday that the money will be used to establish the Gould Family Scholarships.

Gould’s grandfather graduated from the law school in 1922 and his father in 1952. Both men were longtime attorneys in Dodge City.

Gould says he worked several part-time jobs and benefited from scholarships before earning his law degree in 1989. He says it’s important to give back now that he’s able to do so.

The family tradition might continue. Gould’s two teenage daughters visited the school during Homecoming week.
