New bronze sculptures of businessmen and philanthropists Abraham and Mayer Mitchell were recently unveiled at the east entrance of the University of South Alabama Mitchell College of Business.

The Mitchell family donated the sculptures, crafted by Mobile artist Casey Downing, in honor of the brothers.

In this photo, Arlene Mitchell, a USA trustee and widow of the late Mayer Mitchell, and Abraham Mitchell view the sculptures.

The Mitchell family’s generosity and commitment are evident in the Mitchell College of Business endowment, Abraham Mitchell Scholars Program, Joseph & Rebecca Mitchell Learning Resource Center, and renovation of the business building. In addition to their giving to the Mitchell College of Business, the Mitchells have supported USA’s academic, health care and athletic programs as well.
