Vanderbilt University will repay an 83-year-old donation from the United Daughters of the Confederacy so it can drop the name Confederate Memorial Hall from a residence hall in the center of campus. The university had attempted to rename the building Memorial Hall some years ago but the state chapter of the Daughters fought the move. At the time, the court found that the school would have to repay the donation at its current value if it wanted to remove the name. The Tennessean has more.
