Sure. Yes and no. When I became chairman, the chairman
at the Library always is supposed to sit on the Lincoln Center Board,
and Dick Soloman said he'd like to continue on the Lincoln Center
Board. And I said, “God bless you, Dick. Anything I don't have to
do is fine with me, and I don't like going to meeting, particularly,
anyway. So Dick's been it all along. And now in relation to the new
building I've got Sue Mueller who is a director of ours to represent
me because they wanted me on that. And I put a staff person on and
they said, “No, no. It's got to be a trustee.” So I convinced Sue
Mueller to do that. And she attended her first meeting the other
day. Handled herself very well. When they said, “We have to raise
two and a half million.” She said, “What do you mean we have to
raise two and a half million? Well, the city is putting up the money
for it. We count that as our contribution to the building.”
Oh, when they said that the New York Public Library had to raise
two and a half million dollars, I see.
O.K., anything else on Lincoln Center on the Beaumont?
Well, I'll be curious to know whether there's going to be
another chapter or not.
In the Beaumont?
