Ellsworth Mason quote

Researching something else, I came across this quote from former CC librarian Ellsworth Mason. He’s talking to a potential donor about the library’s nascent rare book collection:

“[Rare books on display] help involve undergraduates emotionally with books, and this, I am convinced, is the basis of the entire educational process.”
