BALTIMORE (AP) -- Johns Hopkins University officials have scheduled a memorial service for former president Steven Muller.
Muller led the school from 1972 to 1990 and also led The Johns Hopkins Hospital from 1972 to 1983. He died Jan. 19 at his home in Washington.
University officials said Monday that a memorial service would be held Friday at the Peabody Institute's Miriam A. Friedberg Concert Hall in Baltimore. During Muller's tenure as president he affiliated the university with the well-known music school, helping to put it on stronger financial footing. Muller also led two fundraising efforts for Hopkins, raising millions of dollars.
Speakers at the memorial service are expected to include current Johns Hopkins President Ronald Daniels as well as Maryland Sen. Barbara Mikulski.
