$4M Colby Gift 

Robert Diamond Jr., who graduated from Colby in 1973, announced the gift on Friday.

His Diamond Family Foundation will give the money in support of the college’s interdisciplinary studies of the environment, energy policies and climate change. The foundation gave Colby $6,000,000 in 2003.

Diamond is president of Barclays PLC, a London-based financial services company that is opening a credit card support call center in Wilton.
