About the Thomsen Fund
In the fall of 2000, Dallas philanthropist Margaret McDermott, wife of the late Texas Instruments co-founder Eugene McDermott, endowed The University of Texas at Dallas with $32 million. Among the components of this generous donation was the Carl J. "Tommy" Thomsen Fund for Student Enrichment, named for the McDermotts' longtime family friend and TI colleague.
