Warren Buffett sister donates $100m to Northwestern University

Warren Buffett's sister Roberta “Bertie” Buffett said. “I’m kind of the quiet one, but this was really exciting. I’m very happy.”

Bertie, 81, earned a history degree from Northwestern, worked on the student newspaper and was a Phi Beta Kappa member. She has lived quietly in California, and renewed her interest in the school when she was co-chair of her 50th class reunion in 2004.

She called the university’s president at the time, about making a gift in honor of the Class of 1954.
