Paul Ylvisaker has been described as the heart and soul of organized philanthropy. He made a profound contribution to the American people through his service in philanthropy and public service. Conscience and Community: The Legacy of Paul Ylvisaker is a collection of his essays, speeches, and articles on philanthropy, education, urban issues, and community, covering the early 1960s to shortly before his death in March 1992. They represent a chronology of the times documenting the War on Poverty, the environmental movement, education reform, and the role of America's philanthropic sector, to name just a few. But more important, they show the vision and timelessness of Paul Ylvisaker's writings - a tribute to an extraordinary man.
