1994 ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE
Howard Hoffman, who played varsity basketball for both George Garber and Bill Reinhart in the late `40s and 1950 following two years of military service, was the first former letterwinner to be elected to the University's Athletic Hall of Fame for achieving outstanding personal success and exhibiting extraordinary service, support and loyalty to GW.
Hoffman, who earned a bachelor of arts degree in business administration, was a member of the University's board of Trustees beginning in 1982. A major success in his financial and real estate career, he has been very generous to his alma mater in many ways. A life member of GW's Luther Rice Society, he has been a major donor to the Dimock Gallery, Smith Center and men's basketball program. In addition, he endows the Howard P. Hoffman Lecture Fund in Entrepreneurship.
The Brooklyn, N.Y. native, who resides in Las Vegas, NV., with his wife, Rebecca has three grown children: Betsy, Jamie and Scott.
