I want to compliment you on returning to the magazine format for the Green & White. Looks great! In a future issue, you may want to profile the web pages of the University Archives such as those on the University History page at www.usask.ca/archives/history.

It was with the greatest delight that I opened my copy of the Green & White; I had despaired ever of seeing it returned to the dignified magazine format which was discontinued in the 90's. My interest stems from the fact that I am a former Association President and was a longtime member of the Alumni Association's Communications Committee.
At that time, the Green & White was strictly an in-house job, the editor supplied and paid for by the University while the rest of us were volunteers. The decision to farm out the job to a commercial marketing firm was, in my opinion, a huge error. It now seems that the wheel has turned full circle. I look forward to future issues. Congratulations and continued success.

I read with interest your article entitled Shakespeare Abroad in the fall issue of the Green & White. It was encouraging to learn that there are University initiatives taking place that focus on teaching and learning, rather than on the research and innovation that we're always hearing so much about. While I am proud of the fact that the U of S is having such tremendous success with projects like the Canadian Light Source, it's important that we never lose sight of one of the primary purposes of the University: to teach.

I thought you might be interested in the publication of the paperback, Tommy Douglas: The Road to Jerusalem written by Thomas H. McLeod and son, Ian McLeod. The original was published in 1987, but this is the first reprint since then. As Tommy Douglas was declared the 'Greatest Canadian' in the CBC contest, there is a new interest in his life and achievements.
