Fitting memorial

April 29, 2007


To the editor:

I enjoyed your April 22 article reporting the dedication of the Wilma Crawford Community Center and the Juanita and Reginald Strait Park. A generous donation from Mr. and Mrs. Rudkin in memory of Wilma Crawford and thoughtful supervision by the KU Endowment Association has completed a marvelous center for residents of the various university scholarship halls.

It should be noted that, in addition to Juanita and Reginald Strait living in the home for many years, as reported in your article, the house as well as the grounds were donated to the KU Endowment Association by direction of Mrs. Strait's will after her death in 2002. Mrs. Strait often spoke with pride of this anticipated future use of her home. The project is a fitting memorial to both the Strait family and the Crawford family.

Jeffrey O. Heeb,
