Am I correct that Columbia University has taken down the list of names of their Trustees from their web site? If so is there a source for this list from an older publication so that we may write to express our dismay at the recent activity at the University?
I found a list of trustees here (including a handy identification of gender, religion, and ethnicity like students applying to Columbia!). If someone can help us with information on their university email addresses, I’ll add them in an update. In today’s New York Sun, Annie Karni reports on the backlash against Bollinger for his efforts to rescue the school’s reputation in his remarks prefatory to his turning the podium over to Ahmadinejad. Columbia worthies quoted by Karni such as Gary Sick and Eric Foner will help lower the school’s reputation, if possible, among those who understand what happened at Columbia on Monday.
UPDATE: Rick Richman writes: “At the end of this post at Boker tov, Boulder! there is a list of the relevant people at Columbia to write to (and a great suggestion about what to send them).” Royal Smith-Houston writes: “You can go here to access back web information on anyone.” Laura Blanchard alerts us to the school’s own list of trustees with links to background information here.
