TAMPA -- Joy Culverhouse donated $5-million to the University of South Florida's medical school in 1997. Now the school is giving her something back: a husband.
Dr. Robert M. Daugherty, dean of USF's school of medicine, will marry Culverhouse in July at a wine country resort in Napa, Calif. Neither Daugherty, 66, nor Culverhouse, 81, the widow of former Tampa Bay Buccaneers owner Hugh Culverhouse Sr., could be reached for comment Tuesday. Medical school spokesman Michael Hoad said officials are happy for the couple.
"Everyone's delighted," Hoad said. "They're a great couple. He's brought her to all of the school events. They look great together."
Daugherty, a widower, previously served as the dean at the University of Nevada's school of medicine from 1981 to 1999.
Culverhouse saw her public profile increased during the well-publicized legal wranglings over the $380-million estate of her late husband.
