We have much to learn by being out in the world. We need to be interested, not only in helping others to learn, but also in recognizing that we have much to learn in the process. The future of this institution rests on stimulation from contact with people in other cultures, in other parts of the world, and with other experiences.

Dr. Darl Snyder, for many years the Director of International Development at the University of Georgia, and his wife, Florence, have been involved in agricultural development in Latin American and Africa, particularly in the nation of Burkina Faso. In 2003 they donated their papers and their wonderful collection of mementos to the University Archives in the Hargrett Rare Book & Manuscript Library.
