In full: "I don't easily forget meetings, however brief, with dynamic individuals such as yourself. I have shared a copy of your letter with one of the coordinators of the University of Oregon's Centennial. He is enthusiastic about the possibility of displaying your collection throughout the state during 1976, the University's Centennial year, as a Bicentennial tribute. Utilization of the expert services and broad contracts of the Statewide Service Program of the University's Museum of Art would seem to be indicated. I am advised that appropriate people are investigating the matter. If you have further questions, Hope Hughes Pressman, Centennial Coordinator at the University, will be happy to consult with you. Sincerely". Robert Straub (1920-2002) was Lane County Commissioner, Oregon state senator and then Treasurer (1965-1973). He ran for Governor 4 times, winning 1 term (1975-1979).
