Mr. Sugarman graduated first in his class and was elected to the Order of the Coif that year, setting the momentum for a successful career with the IRS and the firm of Baker & Hostetler. The endowment has supported a series of annual lectures on taxation, which since 1984 have been co-sponsored by the Cleveland Tax Institute.
