The July 16 article about Roger Revelle ("Roger Revelle, Founder of UCSD, Is Dead at 82") quoted him as saying, "I don't believe in God . . ." The last paragraph in the article stated that a memorial service would be held at La Jolla Presbyterian Church. He didn't believe in God; why was the memorial service held in a church? Why wasn't it held in an auditorium at the Scripps Institution (of Oceanography) or some other secular location? Isn't that offensive to his beliefs? WALLACE R. DANIELSON, San Diego

The building is on the south side of Revelle Plaza, named for Roger Revelle--another UCSD pioneer--and houses the departments of theater and philosophy, campus counseling and the undergraduate library.

The San Diego Transcript is being sold for an undisclosed amount to Calcomco, a recently formed newspaper company owned largely by the Revelle family of La Jolla, which has close ties to both San Diego and newspapering. No changes are predicted for the 9,000-circulation business and financial newspaper, published Monday through Friday. It began publication in 1886. Keith Lister, who acquired a controlling interest in the newspaper in 1972, will remain as president and publisher.

July 21, 1991 | ROGER REVELLE, Roger Revelle, who helped found UC San Diego, died last week at 82. This article was part of the Revelle College Renaissance Revisited Convocation (date unknown). It is part of the collection of his papers at UCSD's Scripps Archives
A score of years ago, a new publicly supported college was born in La Jolla, conceived in academic idealism, and dedicated to excellence. Now we are meeting, even though many of us hesitate to say so, to discuss whether such a public college, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. When this college was born, we who were involved with it first thought of what a college education should be--remember those were optimistic times, times of rapid change and unlimited horizon.

Your recent series on the future of the San Dieguito River Valley (Dec. 25-27) gave your readers an in-depth look at the very complex issues confronting this sensitive part of San Diego's landscape. The evolving effort to establish a linear, natural park along the river valley is a laudable goal, which property owners, other environmentalists and all San Diegans should strive to achieve. Unfortunately, the Los Angeles Times has failed to explore seriously the opportunities to accomplish the goal of creating the San Dieguito River Park in the foreseeable future.
