9780820438450: Conscience and Community: The Legacy of Paul Ylvisaker (American University Studies)

Paul Ylvisaker has been described as the heart and soul of organized philanthropy. He made a profound contribution to the American people through his service in philanthropy and public service. Conscience and Community: The Legacy of Paul Ylvisaker is a collection of his essays, speeches, and articles on philanthropy, education, urban issues, and community, covering the early 1960s to shortly before his death in March 1992. They represent a chronology of the times documenting the War on Poverty, the environmental movement, education reform, and the role of America's philanthropic sector, to name just a few. But more important, they show the vision and timelessness of Paul Ylvisaker's writings - a tribute to an extraordinary man.

Review:

«Listen, America, to Paul Ylvisaker's voice, to his heart, and to his thoughts. It is the voice that mentored your generation's mentors. It is the heart that held our most passionate and important dreams. And these are the thoughts that influenced four decades of American social ideas, policies, and philanthropy.» (Peter C. Goldmark, Jr., CEO and Chair, 'International Herald Tribune', Former President, The Rockefeller Foundation (1988-1997)
«In urban America, during the tempestuous years of the sixties and the seventies only a few individuals understood the currents of change, and had the clarity of judgement and courage to speak out. Paul Ylvisaker was such a man. His words written and spoken gave hope to urban Americans and his work changed public policy in major cities like Boston.» (Kevin H. White, Mayor of Boston, 1968-1983)
«The Ylvisaker collection is rich in wisdom and pathos. He is deceivingly simple.» (Margaret E. Mahoney, President, MEM Associates)
«Paul Ylvisaker's co-workers in the vineyards of urban revitalization looked to him for stimulation, thoughtfulness, erudition, and enthusiasm for the American prospect. Unstintingly, he gave all that. His wisdom, through the many who heard him, became a cornerstone for much of the progress that American cities are making in our time.» (Neal Peirce and Fred Jordan, authors)
«His words are poignant and prophetic - as relevant today as they were when he wrote them. Anyone concerned about education in this country should read this collection. It should become standard fare in colleges and universities across this country.» (John Collins III, Librarian and Member of the Faculty, Harvard Graduate School of Education)
«Thanks to Paul's writings we still have the enormous guidance of his piercing beacon. How special he was...and is.» (Brian O'Connell, Professor of Public Service, Tufts University, Founding President, Independent Sector)
