Letter to Annie Alexander of March 14, 1921
From 1901 on, Annie Alexander
supported paleontological research and collecting at the
University of California. In 1921, after the Department of Paleontology
had been merged with the Department of Geology, Miss Alexander chose to
endow the Museum of Paleontology as a research institution separate from
the academic departments. This letter gives University President Barrows's
response. Scroll down below the letter to read a transcription. View

Berkeley, March 14, 1921.
My dear Miss Alexander:
I have had an estimate made by the Superintendent of Grounds of the changes necessary in Bacon Hall, in the hope that our funds will enable us to carry through these alterations for the beginning of the next academic year.
With renewed expressions of my appreciation, I am
