A Letter from Ismail Serageldin

October 25, 1999 --

The following letter was received by us from Ismail Serageldin with a request to post it on the Website to thank you all and to formally close the campaign.

We do so with a certain regret. The campaign was an effort that motivated many of us in ways we had not thought possible about an institution that was not so high on our radar screens. It was the ideas and the credibility of the candidate that made it happen for us. Herewith his letter to us and to all of you, in both English and French.

Ray Vincent and Obsis Madkour.
