"This month marks a great loss for the Briscoe Center and the entire University of Texas community with the death of Bernard Rapoport. It was one of the great honors of my life to work with him on his memoir, Being Rapoport: Capitalist with a Conscience, and it left me with nothing but deep admiration, respect, and affection for B."
