Carnegie Hall bestows medal on Segerstrom

Henry T. Segerstrom, the man who built South Coast Plaza and who donated land on which the Orange County Performing Arts Center now stands, was honored in New York on Monday night with Carnegie Hall’s Medal of Excellence.

Segerstrom is only the fourth person to receive the medal, which recognises leadership in arts philanthropy, from the New York performing arts institution. He picked up the medal at a gala dinner in his honor at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.
