A Classic

John T. Quinn was a good friend to the Hope College Libraries. He generously donated many wonderful and well-chosen resources from his own collection, helped me make decisions about some of our other donations, and served enthusiastically as liaison from his department. Recently, after discussing the reviews with John, I purchased the HBO series Rome on dvd for the library collection. He was thrilled that ancient Rome was part of modern culture, a little worried that the content was too risque for some Hope students, but glad that we could provide such a resource to enhance a Hope education. As far as I know, he never got to watch it. Check it out this summer and think of John when you watch it.
