Winner of Carnegie Corporation’s academic leadership award Willliam ‘Brit’ Kirwan to speak at Morrill Act Conference at University of Illinois at Urbana.

As the president of Ohio State University, William ‘Brit’ Kirwan lifted his institution to the front ranks in scholarship and community service, as it held its own in sports. A leading mathematician, he set systems in place that eased the

That's an amazing honor, conrgrats to William Kirwan! I know this might be a "stupid" question, but Carnegie Corporation is based off of Andrew Carnegie of the steel corporation right?

Lincoln, A Self-help Guide

I first met General Donald Scott at the Library of Congress, a beloved and sprawling institution where one needs more than a map to navigate.  As Deputy Librarian of Congress, he helped a novice director maneuver seeming arcane financial reports for

I think we could all look to Lincoln and his stick to it attitude for a little inspiration!

Susan Dyer is a fantastic woman! I can't wait to go back to Kentucky and see Lincoln's home again. Thanks for sharing

She is writing a book about Judge Holt? My daughter and I were just learning about Judge Holt and what exactly he did in the Lincoln conspirators -- this will be a must read!

That's a great story. I always appreciate when people have a great sense of humor, it seems to help them move along with their career and also for people to enjoy their company. Holt seems like an interesting guy, someone whom a book may shed a bit of light when history(at least what I've learned) has largely forgotten!
