 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 3

Scope and Contents

Writing to Libby and Bill Gottwald following Commencement, describes Lexington as experiencing the 'mass exodus' yet describes his busy schedule of University business, including finding a replacement for Law School Dean Rick Kirgis and receiving the funding necessary for a micro-computer lab in the School of Commerce, the restoration of Morris House, development of a new arts center, an increase in both applications and the Annual Fund. Yet Wilson also identifies what still needs to be done – strengthening of the endowment, the reformation of the fraternity system. Wilson finishes the letter with a personal touch.
