A Blue-Chipper

William Kloefkorn - Lincoln

I take a lot of pleasure in keeping my connections with Wesleyan intact—a weekly coffee service with Scott Stanfield and Sandy McBride and others; letters and phone calls to and from retired faculty, among them Leon Satterfield and Roger Cognard; an occasional walk through the campus to make certain that Old Main and the bur oaks continue to grow and thrive.

And Archways.

This quarterly, Sir, is a blue-chipper, consistently well written and splendidly illustrated and masterfully edited. Its tri-focus upon the past, the present, and the future is impressive; from its title and artwork on the front cover through the Mystery Photo (or something equally challenging) on the back, it represents Wesleyan as a first-class liberal arts university.

I congratulate you and your staff. You keep me connected to Wesleyan in a very meaningful way, and this connection in turn makes me, on a regular quarterly basis, downright proud.
