I previously blogged the sad news that Paul McDaniel, James J. Freeland Eminent Scholar in Taxation and Professor of Law at the University of Florida Levin College of Law, is seriously ill with stage IV mesothelioma. Marty McMahon, Paul's long-time friend and colleague, presented Paul with a plaque announcing the Paul R. McDaniel International Tax Scholarship:
Paul, on behalf of your colleagues at the University of Florida Graduate Tax Program, your students, and your friends, I want to present you with this plaque to commemorate the founding of the Paul R. McDaniel International Tax Scholarship at the University of Florida College of Law, an endowed fund that will support scholarships for international tax students and international tax scholars to come and participate in the International Tax Program. We are eternally grateful for your contributions to the Graduate Tax Program, particularly the International Tax Program, and for the enrichment of our lives and our careers that you have brought to us. Thank you very much.
The plaque reads: "In Honor of PAUL R. MCDANIEL ~ inspirational teacher and scholar ~ his colleagues, students, and friends have established THE PAUL R. MCDANIEL INTERNATIONAL TAX SCHOLARSHIP at the University of Florida College of Law."
