The “dean” of development officers in Texas, if not the entire nation, Bob Walker has been instrumental in raising hundreds of millions of dollars for Texas A&M University, including many of the largest gifts in the university’s history.  He provides through this book many instructive and sometimes amusing vignettes of his encounters with a wide range of benefactors to Texas A&M.

“Bob Walker is much more than a fundraiser.  He devotes all of his time to making and keeping friends for the university.  I have never met anyone with as much capacity to help Aggies as he has.”—Former Texas A&M President Ray M. Bowen

“Bob Walker contributed significantly in creating the culture of stewardship that has helped make Texas A&M one of the nation’s truly great land-grant, sea-grant, and space-grant universities.”—Mark A. Hussey, Interim President, Texas A&M University
