Fisher, Don: Cal Alumnus of the Year 2007

This memory of Don Fisher, Gap Inc. Founder and Chairman, was mailed in to the corporate archives department by me as part of a company project to honor his status as the University of California at Berkeley's 2007 Alumnus of the Year.

"I would like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Fisher for sharing their breathtaking art collection with the Gap Inc. community. Their collection is second only to MOMA in New York for its breadth, depth and quality of 20th Century art. Our buildings hold works by the most important artists of 1950 to the present. Many rooms in the Two Folsom galleries are mini-museums in thier own right dedicated to one artist, with pieces that are representative of every style and period in that artist's career.

I have taken many, many friends on tours of the galleries over the years so that as many people as possible can benefit from this treasure. Thank you for making Calder, Serra, Warhol, Lichtenstein and Richter (to name just a few) a part of my daily life! Go Bears!"
