Wow! Andrea gets to keep my books after all!
Nearly twenty years after arranging with Margaret, the special collections librarian at UC Santa Cruz to donate my science fiction and fantasy library to the Heinlein Papers Collection "because yours will dovetail nicely with Mr. Heinlein's," UCSC has decided they don't want the collection after all.

They want me to give it to UC Riverside, who has a science fiction collection.

Unfortunately, while I was willing to discuss providing funding in addition to the books, which wasn't in the original deal, I don't know anybody at UCR, and I don't give a whoot about UCR.

So, if UCSC doesn't want the collection, they can whistle for any money from me ever, and my daughter gets the books after all.

on the one hand, you can't escape idiotic bureaucrats and pencil-pushers in any business or public agency. On t'other, Andrea lucks out on the deal....

Utterly unsurprising. Were I the king, I'd banish SC from the UC system.
