          collecting. A further plus is that she could more or less operate on her own. 

I know there are a couple of stumbling blocks: 1) How Bob Palmer might react, 2) housing the new books - until we get a big enough collection to take over the James Room! But I think you should consider this for Iola for all the reasons Barbara + I have discussed and because she cares so much about the Center. Incidentally the subject of the Director did not come up so I guess she realizes that was not one of her soundest ideas. 

I note from Kate's letter to me of July 6th that she would like Iola on the Advisory Committee. A good alternative to[/] adaptation of the above suggestion. She could be invited on it and asked to take the specific assignment of books and archives etc. 

The serendipity aspect of the lunch was Iola announcing she'd invited "Bill McGill" ("it's Bill-Iola, now, Elly") to mixed doubles at Baker Field next Tuesday and he's coming! 

Hope to see you both soon. 

Love, Elly.
