"A Maverick in the Field ... "

Prof. Marybeth Gasman of the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education and her colleague Noah D. Drezner have just published an award-nominated scholarly study of The Oram Group's historic role in helping historically black colleges and universities raise funds. A Maverick in the Field: The Oram Group and Fundraising in the Black College Community During the 1970s is based on our company's files that are archived at the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University, on some of my published speeches and writings - and on interviews with me some years ago. For the the full paper please cut and paste: http://embedit.in/HEhi5gGRFI.

Reading it for the first time was exceptionally moving and emotion-inducing. I lived it, participated in the work, and with other colleagues like Eve Bates and Liz Hicks, Paul Frillmann and many others carried forward Harold Oram's idealism hard pragmatism and great tradecraft. No other consulting firms in this field - of which I'm aware - have been the subject of such a study.
