Marc Adelman, Elizabeth edwards Foundation

"No one loved the written word more than Elizabeth Edwards. She loved lyrics; she cherished beautiful prose and she always inspired the use of good grammar in those around her. One of my favorite memories of Elizabeth is playing word games with her on a midnight train from New York to Washington. Intellectual curiosity was Elizabeth's hallmark and it is fitting that opportunities in education are the mission of the Elizabeth Edwards Foundation. "
