Savitar : UM Yearbook 1894-2006 : A Splendid Past Revived
Metadata[+] Show full item record
This has been the most elusive project in my life! It had been lingering on and on for at least a decade. It is an irony of fate that so many assistants came, began the work, and left it incomplete. The very first one began the work in right earnest but left Columbia for good, along with all of our original documents. The penultimate player was Nicole Garner. She was highly competent and made a very good beginning, especially in exploring the University Archives. A good deal of background material is her contribution here. Finally we found Christine Soucy, who brought the boat to the shore. She scored the final touchdown! May OM bless her! Arjuna was a great warrior, no doubt. But Shri Krishna was his guide. The final product is like the gem studded in gold. A great deal of credit goes to our closest coworker, Kamalee—Katherine Marie Lee—now Mrs. Strickland and a worthy mother. She has been all along my great partner in the pursuit of knowledge and served as a good guide to Christine. All is well that ends well. However, I would like to assure our readers that what is presented here is only a minute fraction of what my mind had envisaged. Something is better than nothing. I hope Christine will continue to work on Savitar under the able guidance of Kamalee, a proficient pro. Om Shanti!
