Dr. Albert Shaw of New York became a member of the Board of Trustees of Anatolia in 1922, when the need arose for a separate committee, which would not be tied to the Audit Committee of the American Council, so that Anatolia College could secure the Charles M. Hall Educational Endowment and acquire a substantial financial base. Through his intervention, Anatolia College was also able to obtain a new gift of $275,000 from the Hall Endowment, in addition to the originally agreed upon gift of $50,000, and an additional $25,000 for the construction of its new facilities.
