The Robert J. Milano Lecture and Scholarship Fund commemorate the late Robert J. Milano (1912-2000), founder and longtime President and Chairman of Millmaster Onyx, a public firm that was sold in the 1980s to Gulf Oil Company. Mr. Milano also served as a New York City deputy mayor during the Koch Administration and was a longstanding trustee and former vice chairman of The New School. In 1996, the trustees of the university named Milano The New School for Management and Urban Policy in his honor.
