*Farewell to the Brands

The IUB Libraries purchased books to honor the service of Myles and Peg Brand on their departure from the university. Letters presented by Suzanne Thorin detailed the acquistitions and the reasons for their purchase:

[To Myles] As a heartfelt expression of our gratitude for your support of the IU Libraries, we have added the following books to the universitys collections in your honor: Aesthetics: Sources in the Nineteenth Century, John V. Price, editor. This eight-volume set features the most important and least accessible Anglo-American 19th-century aesthetics texts....Your steadfast support has benefited the IU Libraries immeasurably. Your advocacy for the construction of the Ruth Lilly Auxiliary Library Facility, your decision to name the Main Library in honor of Chancellor Wells, and your infusion of annual funds for our collections have served the university well.

[To Peg] In honor of your lasting influence on the academic community through your artistry, scholarship and commitment, the IU Libraries have added a distinctive artists book to the universitys collections: Limestone Lives: Voices from the Indiana Stonebelt by IU M.F.A. student Kate Ferrucci. This limited-edition, hand-printed book pays tribute to Indiana limestone carvers with striking imagery and personal histories.

Peg responded with appreciation that the acquistions were "such thoughtful gestures and so carefully chosen. What a wonderful way to remember: a new treasure or two for the library."
