Happy Founder’s Day

It’s time for the annual wish of a happy b’day to Thomas Jefferson, founder of the University of Virginia (AKA, “the University,” “TJU,” “Mr. Jefferson’s Resort”). The Jefferson Legacy Foundation, which characterizes Mr. Jefferson’s legacy as including “models for civic responsibility; active participation in society; revitalization of democracy; lifelong learning; service to others; and the pursuit of happiness,” has many worthwhile features on his contributions. Link to last year’s post on this birthday.
