Donation in honor of Kevin P. Reilly

Chancellor Harden recently presented a copy of Samuel Beckett: The Complete Dramatic Works to the Cofrin Library.  This book is part of a larger collection in honor of Kevin P. Reilly who served as the University of Wisconsin System President from 2004 until 2013, that was presented to each of the UW system libraries.  The dedication in each book reads “This is one of a set of Irish literature books given to UW institutions to honor UW System’s sixth president, Kevin P. Reilly, champion of more graduates, proud Irish American, published scholar in Irish Studies, and devoted connoisseur of poetry – fondly known for reading a poem at virtually every Board of Regent’s meeting.” Chancellor Harden’s personal dedication reads “It is an honor to have this volume in our library to recognize President Reilly’s steadfast commitment to public higher education.”
