Supporting Spectrum - Dr. Em Claire Knowles

Photo of Dr. Em Claire KnowlesI mailed a postcard to ALA over thirty years ago to request help to find funding for graduate school. I am most grateful to the Association staff member who wrote to my two institutions of choice to alert them of my needs.

This was quite helpful and I am grateful to this day. With my bequest, I am able to continue to make a long term commitment to ALA and other students who have the same concern as me.

Thus, I have stipulated the Spectrum program that will continue to award scholarships to talented students of color entering our field.
