"In 2003, a major gift commitment from the Catalyst Fund endowed the The James H. Laue Chair in World Religions, Diplomacy, and Conflict Resolution, and created a center in the same field. The chair is named for James H. Laue, the inaugural Vernon M. and Minnie I. Lynch Professor of Conflict Resolution at George Mason from 1987 until his death in 1993." [1] Based at George Mason University.
