Pulliam Center for Contemporary Media," is noted in today's Indianapolis Star. The Pulliam gift is cited in a sidebar to a story which examines the recent announcement that St. Vincent Children's Hospital is now named the Peyton Manning Children's Hospital at St. Vincent.

"The names of Ruth Lilly, Christel DeHaan, the Simons and Eugene and Marilyn Glick grace hospital units, university divisions and museums in Indiana because of the money they gave," writes Daniel Lee. "The children's hospital appears to carry the name of the Indianapolis Colts quarterback because of the money he might help attract. St. Vincent has said only that Manning and his wife, Ashley, made an unspecified donation, but the couple requested that the nature of the gift remain private."
