Visit Rockefeller Archive Center?
Dear Dick
As a historian you would, I think, be particularly gratified to see the Archive Center; and of course it is an important part of the institutional memory of the Foundation. (Some time may I share some horror stories with you in re Stanford.)
Not to mention that the Foundation participates in the governance and funding of the Center.
Would you like to visit it? Joe Ernst would be delighted to show you around and I am sure you (and Jing) would enjoy it.
Larry Stifel can brief you on some of the background.
Yours,
Joshua.
All the best for 81!
