We want to commend you on your coverage of the 1986 International Mathematic Olympiad, when the U.S. team tied for first place with the Soviet Union.
As grandparents of David Grabiner, a member on the team and winner of a gold medal, we were naturally very pleased to see his name mentioned in an editorial (July 17) and to read the stories featuring him in follow-up articles.
In a deeper sense, we greatly appreciate your doing what is so important--bringing to the attention of your readers the need to encourage, respect and celebrate all constructive, educational achievements. We thank you for caring and sharing!
ALFRED and RUTH TOFIELD VICTOR
