Capitalism,  The Way to a World of Peace and Plenty

Dear Mr. Anderson:

Thank you so much for you kind and generous donation to the Carey Center at Hamline University’s Graduate School.

Like you, we are impressed with Ray Carey’s vision of democratic capitalism and are committed to making his vision a reality in school and university curricula.  We have made a good start this term in running a graduate-level seminar in Education, Public Administration, Liberal Studies, and Law faculty and students present in the seminar.  We have read much of Ray’s work and he has guided us through a re-reading of many classics of democracy.  We have argued and thought about democratic capitalism for the semester.  Tonight is the last class, and I can tell you that the whole group is even more committed to the capital need for Ray’s vision across the globe at the end of the semester then we were at the beginning.

I know that Professor Michael Hartoonian will be sending you information on other programs and activities related to the Center, so I will not repeat them here.  I hope that we have an opportunity to work together in the future in Mississippi and in Minnesota.

Best wishes for the holidays.


Diane M. Dunlap, Dean
