Lift the Chorus

Letters from our readers

And I quote

A letter you published [Lift the Chorus, issue No. 1] “instantiates” for me this quotation from Henry Fowler.

“Display of [supposedly] superior knowledge is as great a vulgarity as display of superior wealth—greater, indeed, inasmuch as knowledge should tend more definitely than wealth towards discretion and good manners.”

–William Bradley, c’77, l’80

Day brightener

Hooray for our Jayhawk’s bright colors found in the winter issue of Kansas Alumni. The excellent writing, colorful design and photo layouts are terrific examples of a magazine standing among good company from other colleges and universities. An award-winning production perhaps?

–Janis Brown Hutchison, ’72
Care correspondent for the KU Retirees’ Endacott Society

Redesign all good

Something wonderful happened yesterday, thanks to you and yours! I actually read the new alumni magazine. All the way through. For the very first time.

What a metamorphosis! Everything makes for good reading. Good content, layout, topics and writing. I even like the non-reflective paper stock!

Thank you, thank you. I’m only a Jayhawk by marriage, but am thoroughly devout.

Editors’ note: Due to a reporter’s misunderstanding, a profile of Brig. Gen. Kevin Admiral [“Army commandant relishes dynamic career in tanks, not Tomcats,” issue No. 3, 2020] incorrectly described Admiral’s father as a student at the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth. His father worked at the fort’s Directorate of Information Management. We regret the error.
