Jane Daggett Dillenberger taught us the love of beauty and the beauty of love and now all these lessons are required to keep the learning alive. Her legacy as our Mentor and Muse lives on in the lives she touched, the academic field she pioneered, the books she wrote, the lessons she taught in classrooms, living and dining rooms as well as museums like the Metropolitan in New York when I was her Drew University student in the 1950's. In dark moments we may recall Jane's conviction that learning is a dialogue that never ends and continue the conversation in that light.
