Q:

Did members of the board have a discussion with her about it?

Heiskell:

Q:

With him?

Heiskell:

No. No. They separated; she remarried, I think, and divorced. And I don't know, I saw him at some Harvard event a while back.

Q:

Who was the man, if it was a public--

Heiskell:

Parker. His name is Parker. I'm trying to remember what his first name was.

Q:
