  • A Minneapolis couple has donated about $8 million to Marquette University in Milwaukee to establish a journalism fellowship.
    Peter and Patricia Frechette made the donation in honor of Patricia's parents, Perry and Alicia O'Brien, who graduated from Marquette in the 1930s. Perry O'Brien was a longtime reporter with the Janesville Gazette and WCLO radio.
    The partnership with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/VTV6FP ) is aimed at bringing journalists from all different types of media to Marquette for an academic year to work with students on in-depth public service journalism projects.
    The fellowship begins this fall.
