This project is more important than the pictures. It is really all about a certain kind of social set of coincidences. It is about constituency. It is about a group of people who strive to work together in a place, in order to make something good happen.
It is about us, people who are, or who have been, in a special time and place; all of them associated with the institution of Marylhurst University.
