VCU Collection Offers More on Hill's Legacy 

Thank you for your coverage of Oliver Hill, a remarkable person and a great gift to our commonwealth (Street Talk, News & Features, Aug. 8).

If you care to see detail on his most famous case, I welcome your visit to Web sites where my own work on Prince Edward can be found, some of which was done for Oliver Hill and his colleagues in the later stages of the case during school closing:
