Did I really just send a "please correct my affiliation to UConn not UCONN email?" Yes, yes I did. Just doing the lord jonathan's work out here, all day every day.

➼ A wonderful story about an extraordinary young woman [Amanda Yagan]. There is no doubt that she will continue doing wonderful things regardless of her eventual career choice.

➼ I thought I was unique having a Michigan vanity auto plate that read “UCONN 52.” That is until, returning from a doctor’s visit, I saw and honked at a “UCONN 84” plate. Then they passed me returning my honk and wave. It made my day. I look forward to my UConn Magazine. The school and its students are doing spectacular things. I don’t think I’d qualify for admission today. Keep it up!

➼ Thank you so much for the arrival of the latest issue of the UConn Magazine! I learned much history there in 1966-67. My adviser, A. William Hoglund, was a remarkable historian and professor! He visited me in Bethel, Maine, every summer until his death.

A Husky and a Cypriot
➼ Irene [Soteriou] wrote the Alliance Against Genocide’s monthly newsletters while she interned with Genocide Watch. Her initiative and creativity made her one of our most outstanding staff members. How she found time to do that along with her many other activities still amazes me. I hope Irene will become a major advocate for human rights in our State Department, the UN, human rights NGOs, or refugee rights organizations.

➼ It is great to read about the work you [Violet Jiménez Sims] are doing to not only prepare prospective educators, but also in facilitating the acquisition of knowledge that your students must have in order to think on their feet and always have a plan B. Well done.
