Alienating new donors

Dear Editor:It is a mystery to me as to why Ms. Margerum and Mr. Isaacson want to remove the name of Walter Paepke from the auditorium which bears his name, a name that has not been tarnished by any scandal that I know of. Mr. Paepke paid for the building with absolutely legal tender, not now in question, so why are Ms. Margerum and Mr. Isaacson so eager to reward new donors at the expense of not-so-old donors? This policy, if it is one, would make potential donors shudder at the very thought of contributing to the Institute.Maggie DeWolfAspen
