Baund in white cloth lettered in gilt, a fine pristine copy in fine pristine pictorial dust jacket. Leland and LaRita Boren arrived in Upland, Indiana, in 1965 and almost immediately they immersed themselves in the Upland community and in the life of Taylor University. LaRita served on the Taylor University Board of Trustees for 34 years and virtually every significant University development during her service had her imprint. The Borens have enriched the Taylor experience for students, faculty, and staff. LaRita once described her and Leland's investment in the University as "stronger, . . . more far-reaching, and . . . of more importance than anything we can do." LaRita passed away February 10, 2011, and Leland continues to be actively involved with Taylor. LaRita, a native of Oklahoma, loved to hear her father tell stories of the heritage of the West. Leland, raised in Indiana, wanted to know everything about this land his wife so dearly Gary Niblett, Summer Showers, 1982, Oil, 24 x 36 inches loved. The Borens' art collection was started in 1971, when the staff at Avis Industrial Corporation presented them with A Pause That Refreshes, an oil painting by Joe Beeler. Thus began an exciting journey of building a collection acquired through galleries, private treaty, and gifts from friends. Leland and LaRita together searched out Western art galleries, attended auctions, and experienced both the agony and ecstasy of the quest.
