What a Walter

Dear Editor:Hooray for Water II. Walter II being the Aspen Institute’s president, Walter Isaacson, and Walter I being Walter Paepcke.The new Doerr-Hosier Center at the Aspen Institute is the greatest thing that has happened to Aspen since the founding of the Institute and the Aspen Music Festival and School. It’s a “state-of-the-art” building with an outstanding variety of meeting rooms, beautiful outdoor spaces, a stunning art gallery, and possesses excellent audio/video equipment. It should bring a new and important role to the Aspen Institute’s involvement in national and international affairs.And significant to us Aspenites is that Walter Isaacson told me on Friday that it that it was important to him the it was available to the Aspen community. The multiple possible uses of this center available for local public affairs and events – plus uses by our nonprofit arts and other organizations – seem endless.Thank you to everyone at the Aspen Institute and the many donors who provided the funds to build this beautiful edifice in Aspen.Bob KlinemanAspen
