I just finished the articles on the Heritage website, and I want to say congratulations and many kudos to all of you. The website is spectacular and the articles are very engaging. A great selection of initial pieces—really a fine sampling of University history in several dimensions. And I really appreciate that you haven’t whitewashed anything. Hard to say which are my favorites, but they’re all great. I look forward to what’s coming next. Many thanks for developing a great resource.
