THE DEAN'S COLUMN

This issue of Connect! showcases many of the advancement projects underway in the Baylor University Libraries.

The lead article highlights our beloved Ann Miller and her lasting legacy to her students who, in turn, desire to leave a lasting legacy by dedicating a stained glass window in the Armstrong Browning Library in her memory. Vallombrosa, a monastery near Florence, Italy, was one of the special sites Elizabeth Barrett Browning wished to visit. You will enjoy reading the account of Elizabeth's determination to travel to Vallombrosa.

2007 marks the 50th anniversary of the Class of 1957 and their class gift to the Libraries. To mark this landmark occasion, the Class of '57 will seek to add to their original endowment gift. May their tribe increase!

These are but two examples of the exciting stories in this issue of Connect!. I trust you will read it front to back.
