LINDHOLM ATTRACTS ANNUAL GIVING FROM CORNELL, HARVARD, YALE

Lindholm attracts gifts to 1953 AG from Cornell, Harvard, and Yale alumni

Ools ranks among our best Class of 1953 boosters and Locomotive Cheerleader par excellence.  Here’s a sample of what he achieved this past autumn:

To:

Annual Giving Office

Princeton University

Princeton, NJ 08540

Letter number one

November 5, 2013

Gentlemen:

Enclosed find a contribution to Princeton University which should be credited to the Annual Giving account of the Class of 1953.

The donor, (Anonymous), (address, New York, New York 10065) was an Olympic Gold Medal winner in Sailing and as such would probably appreciate it if these funds could be directed to assist Princeton’s Sailing Team, or as an alternate – Crew. I suspect he would prefer not see them support our football program, particularly in the area of field goal training facilities. Mr. (Anonymous) is a Distinguished Member of the Harvard Class of 1952.

Sincerely,

Clifford Lindholm II, ‘53

Letter number two:

November 8, 2013

Gentlemen:

Enclosed find a check in the amount of $20.00 as a contribution to this year’s Annual Giving Campaign to be credited to the Class of 1953.

It is being given by a Distinguished Member of the Cornell University Class of 1967 who wishes to be recognized anonymously as a Friend of PRINCETON 1953.

He majored in Chemical Engineering which is commendable – but was denied, due to geography, the educational experiences of Dr. Alyea’s lectures. I suspect that he would appreciate his contribution going towards chemical engineering laboratory materials – and definitely not used to support the University’s athletic facilities – football in particular.

Sincerely,

Clifford F. Lindholm ‘53

Letter number three

November 12, 2013

Gentlemen:

Enclosed find a check in the amount of $20.00 as a contribution to this year’s Annual Giving Campaign to be credited to the Class of 1953.

It is being given by a Distinguished Member of the Cornell University Class of 1961 who wishes to be recognized anonymously as a Friend of PRINCETON 1953.

He majored in Civil Engineering which is commendable – and benefited significantly from gaining a Master’s Degree from Princeton! I suspect that he would appreciate his contribution going toward acquiring additional theodolites to help educate incoming engineering students of the Class of 2017. Hopefully some will become good linemen! (offense or defense??).

Sincerely,

Clifford F. Lindholm II, ‘53

Letter number four

November 18, 2013

Gentlemen:

Enclosed find a check in the amount of $19.53 as a contribution to this year’s Annual Giving Campaign to be credited to the Class of 1953.

It is being given by a Distinguished Member of the Yale Class of 1963 who majored in Economics – (Anonymous), who lives at (address), Savanna, GA. He is certain that next year I will be supporting an Alumni Fund located in New Haven, CT.

I am not troubled by this remote possibility, but please see that his contribution supports additional funding of Economics library material to assist incoming students of the Class of 2017 who might become Economics Majors – and also some who are familiar with defensive linemen routines.

Sincerely,

Clifford F. Lindholm II, ‘53
