DANVILLE, Ky. — A tiny liberal arts school in Kentucky that hosted vice presidential debates in recent years has landed one of the largest donations ever to a U.S. college or university.

Centre College announced the gift of stocks worth $250 million Tuesday from the A. Eugene Brockman Charitable Trust. The total value puts it among the 20 biggest such gifts of all time, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education.
