The Preservation of Knowledge
Kudos to Andy Hamilton, new Vice Chancellor of Oxford (and former Guilford resident), for highlighting "the preservation of knowledge," and the role played by museums in this, as one of the three key functions of a university. Plainly my colleagues at Yale did a good job of educating him during his tenure as Provost! You can watch his inaugural address to the University in its entirety here.
