"Frugal" Bob Gage leaves Western Mustangs $1 M

The University of Western Ontario announced today a major bequest of $1 million from the late Bob "Scoop" Gage that will bring his total giving to the university to almost $1.2 million. When asked how Gage (left and centre in a classic newsman's fedora of the day) could amass a million dollars, sources said he had lived frugally. The bequest from the long-time London Free Press sports reporter will support current Mustangs and future generations of Western student-athletes. Known as the “dean of amateur sports reporters in Canada,” Gage covered the Western Mustangs during his 33-year career with the London Free Press. He died July 12, 2009 at the age of 89.
