Richard E. Wainerdi and the Texas Medical Center by William Henry Kellar( )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1980s, Wainerdi took charge of the Texas Medical Center, embarking on a "second career" that ultimately expanded the center from thirty-one institutions to fifty-three and increased its size threefold. Wainerdi pushed for and ensured a culture of collaboration and cooperation. In doing this, he developed a new nonprofit administrative model that emphasized building consensus, providing vital support services, and connecting member institutions with resources that enabled them to focus on their unique areas of expertise. At a time when Houston was widely known as the "energy capital of the world," the city also became home to the largest medical complex in the world. Wainerdi's success was to enable each member of the Texas Medical Center to be an integral part of something bigger and something very special in the development of modern medicine"--Supplied by publisher

Your own true colors : commencement address Wellesley College June 1, 1990 by Barbara Bush( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Barbara Bush is one of America's most beloved first ladies, and one of only two in our history to be both the wife and mother of a president. Celebrated for her wit, candor, and ebullience, she was embraced on both sides of the political aisle. In the outpouring of national admiration and affection in the days following her death in the spring of 2018 at age ninety-two, many remembered the commencement address she gave to the Wellesley College Class of 1990. She urges the graduates to believe in something larger than themselves, citing her own commitment to literacy and her belief that 'if more people could read, write, and comprehend, we would be much closer to solving so many of the problems plaguing our society.' Barbara Bush's message about men, women, diversity, and big ideals--finding one's own true colors--is as timely, important, and inspiring as ever."--Book jacket

Barbara Bush : a memoir by Barbara Bush( )

9 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in English and French and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through the friendships she developed over the years with world leaders and their spouses, we meet and get to know the Gorbachevs, the Thatchers, the Mitterrands, the Mubaraks, and many others. And she tells us why she threw so much of her energy and compassion behind the important cause of making more Americans literate. This memoir includes hundreds of the funny, often self-deprecating, and occasionally touching anecdotes for which Mrs. Bush is well known: surprising a rat while swimming in the White House pool; accidentally stomping on Boris Yeltsin's foot under the table during a state dinner; wearing a $29 pair of shoes for her husband's inaugural ball. She also talks about the disappointments of the 1992 presidential campaign and the joys of rediscovering private life, including driving and cooking again for the first time in twelve years. This is a warm and funny memoir that will charm Mrs. Bush's millions of admirers and earn her many more
