Leonard L. Milberg ’53, left, shares a moment with Professor Paul Muldoon, founding chairman of the Lewis Center for the Arts, during an April 28 symposium titled “A Man for the Books” to honor Milberg’s gifts to Princeton. “Not since the collaboration of James Joyce and his character Leopold Bloom have an Irish Catholic and a Jew achieved so much good working in tandem,” said Michael Cadden, the current chairman of the center. The Milberg collections of Irish poetry, prose, and drama have made the University a center for Irish studies, said William Gleason, chairman of the English department. Milberg also was cited for donating collections of Jewish-American writers and American poetry.
