There is no education which one can get from books and costly apparatus that is equal to that which can be gotten from contact with great men and women.

-- Booker Taliaferro Washington (1856 - 1915), American political leader, educator, and author of African ancestry, most famous for his tenure as President of Tuskegee University (1880-1915), Up From Slavery: An Autobiography (1901)

This quote was included in an email I received today from the UI Provost, discussing the university's hope to return to on-campus instruction in the fall.
