I 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.
