The Face of Our Friends 2011

What's in It for Friends of the Libraries?

friends_gaylegrahamyates.jpgThere is a cookbook collection in Magrath Library on the St. Paul campus of the University of Minnesota. In the Andersen Horticultural Library at the University's Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, there is a collection of botanical prints made by artists who specialize in exquisitely detailed and precisely accurate plant art. In the James Ford Bell Library on the fourth floor of Wilson Library, there is a collection of antique and rare—even one-of-a-kind—maps made by very early cartographers. The Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts unit holds in its Performing Arts Archive the extensive papers and records of the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, as well as other local arts organizations.

These are only a few examples from the millions of volumes that the Friends of the University of Minnesota Libraries have been privileged to learn about, view, or even touch as members have attended or sponsored special programs in recent years.

The Friends have a close-in perch for seeing what the Libraries do. While exposure to the Libraries' treasures—books for reading, study, and research; electronic resources for the same purposes; archives and special collections for heritage preservation—is not the purpose of the Friends, such an advantaged perspective enables the Friends to appreciate what we have and to do our work of supporting the Libraries with alacrity.

The Friends' purpose is to assist the librarians and staff in making the University Libraries and its resources more greatly visible to the community and to encourage many more people both inside the University and outside to become users and supporters of the Libraries. We do this by having special events and sometimes promotions of library items or collections. For example, two years ago we sponsored a members-only musical program with VocalEssence's conductor and pianist Philip Brunelle and soloist Maria Jette (now a Friends board member) performing some lively songs, the music for which could be found in the Music Library in Ferguson Hall. Our annual "Feast of Words" event features both clever and scholarly speakers chosen from the University's faculty, including Gerhard Weiss, a favorite retired German professor, who shared little-known facts about the origin of the Encyclopedia Americana. This February, a month focused on love and romance, saw a delightful presentation on one of the original love stories—the legend of Tristan and Isolde—by medievalist and former Friends board member Stephanie Van D'Elden.

While the Friends help the librarians and staff with board and committee meetings, planning events, and publicizing programs on behalf of the Libraries, we also find social and intellectual satisfaction, personal delight, and a fine sense of serving a worthy institution in membership and participation in the Friends of the University of Minnesota Libraries. It is a joy.

Gayle Graham Yates
President, Friends of the Libraries

Donor Profile

As the son of a librarian, Paul T. (Pete) Magee had always thought of libraries as stacks of books. As a faculty member and former dean of the U's College of Biological Sciences, he relied on the many resources of the Libraries. Now as a board member for the Friends of the Libraries, his vision of libraries has grown. Through programs and events sponsored by the Friends, he has learned more about the wide-ranging work of the Libraries, and is especially enthusiastic about innovative programs that support student learning, like the SMART Learning Commons and media services.

Although Pete and his wife Beatrice (Bebe) are long-time annual contributors, they recently decided to add a bequest to their will. The Magees hopes others will do the same, explaining, "Universities are both contemporary and historical institutions. The Libraries are a huge part of the historical side as well as being a vibrantly active part of the contemporary side. By giving money to the Libraries, you not only actively support what's going on today, but you make sure that what's been done in 
the past isn't lost."

Interested in remembering the Libraries in your will? Contact Katherine McGill, development director, at 612-624-8207 or kmcgill@umn.edu.

In Memoriam: Paul C. Nagel

Paul C. Nagel, biographer and historian, died at age 84 on May 22, 2011 in Edina, Minnesota. Nagel, a graduate of the University of Minnesota, spent forty years elsewhere distinguishing himself as a university professor, administrator and writer. He and his wife, Joan, returned to Minneapolis in 1992.

A native of Independence, Missouri, Nagel enrolled at the University at the close of World War II. He earned his bachelor's, master's and, in 1952, the Ph.D in history. In 1948, he married Joan R. Peterson, a librarian at the University. Joan, a genealogist, was a collaborator with Paul in many of his historical works. She died in 2010. Nagel began his career as a teacher and writer. After fifteen years as a professor of history, he became dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Kentucky. In 1969, Nagel was named vice president for academic affairs at the University of Missouri. In 1980, Nagel left academic administration to become the Director of the Virginia Historical Society in Richmond. In 1985, he began to devote full-time to writing for the general reader. He is best known for his three books about the Adams family of Massachusetts: Descent From Glory, The Adams Women and John Quincy Adams. Nagel then turned his attention to The Lees of Virginia. Nagel has also written three books dealing with his native state of Missouri.

In September of 2010, Nagel received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Adams Institute. Only two other persons have been given this honor: David McCullough and Ted Kennedy. Other honors include designation by the state legislature of Virginia as a Cultural Laureate. He was a senior trustee of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Returning to Minnesota, Paul became active at the University of Minnesota, most notably serving on the board of the Friends of the Libraries for over ten years, including 
two years as president of that organization. He is survived by three sons, Eric J., Jefferson, and Steven P. (Monica) and a granddaughter, Margaret Joan Nagel (daughter of Jefferson). Memorials are preferred to the Joan Peterson Nagel Memorial Fund at the University of Minnesota Andersen Library, where the Nagel papers are held.
