Letters from alums about Annual Giving request
Sirs, A story was brought to mind again the other day that makes me happy that I'm not a Yalie. Having participated in many a Princeton Annual Giving telethon and as Class AG subagent for the West Coast, I'm glad I don't have to solicit Yalie Fred Smith for a contribution to Yale's AG.
If I were Fred, I think I would reply: "Why don't you ask the Yale professor who gave me a "C" on my senior thesis to give in my place?"
The subject of Fred's thesis was the delivery of packages overnight across country by air. As some of you already know, Fred Smith is the founder and CEO of FedEx!
