Publication Date 30 Mar 2015
OverviewThe “dean” of development officers in Texas, if not the entire nation, Bob Walker has been instrumental in raising hundreds of millions of dollars for Texas A&M University, including many of the largest gifts in the university’s history. He provides through this book many instructive and sometimes amusing vignettes of his encounters with a wide range of benefactors to Texas A&M.
“Bob Walker is much more than a fundraiser. He devotes all of his time to making and keeping friends for the university. I have never met anyone with as much capacity to help Aggies as he has.”—Former Texas A&M President Ray M. Bowen
“Bob Walker contributed significantly in creating the culture of stewardship that has helped make Texas A&M one of the nation’s truly great land-grant, sea-grant, and space-grant universities.”—Mark A. Hussey, Interim President, Texas A&M University
