Philadelphia has lost a most beloved and consummately gracious civic leader with the passing of Ruth Perelman. In our city's centuries-long history, Mrs. Perelman and her husband, Raymond, have made a mark unlike any other. We at the University of Pennsylvania -- home of the Raymond and Ruth Perelman School of Medicine -- have benefitted invaluably from her tireless generosity and that of Raymond and their family.
