From the Contributors
“She built a suburban university that was nonresidential and commuter into a combination commuter and residential university of renown and respect all over the United States.”
Georgia Senator Johnny Isakson
“It did not take long, however, for me to become aware of deep wellsprings of life force in this extremely gifted and compassionate woman. Betty Siegel reinforces my impulse to acknowledge the spiritual side of humans equally with their intellectual ability.”
