Connie is a fellow member of a board of directors upon which I sit (for a local non-profit organization), and she and her husband recently made an impressive donation to the university: a rare book collection by and about President Theodore Roosevelt. Some of the 125 books are first-edition, others are special-edition, and others are limited-edition. I don't know the difference, but I attended a reception this afternoon to thank Connie and her husband, and the books were on display with table cards explaining what makes each book so rare . . . and it's quite a nice collection. The university's Theodore Roosevelt Center is fortunate to gain this asset.
