Rally for the Given

Dear Editor:

This is a letter of support for the Given Institute … its purpose … its historic community legacy … and delightful structure and architecture.

I was surprised and shocked to discover there is the thought of tearing this down … what! This is a gift from the Paepcke family, the site of many symposia and lectures. I have attended these lectures and I have had the privilege of giving lectures there. I love the little theater in the round. Love the physical space and design.

Aspen, rally to the cry. Keep this from being another part of the charm of Aspen that could be traded away for something much, much less significant.

Alan Nelson
