Basketball rules came to KU, but Booth keeps another bit of KU hoops history close by

Posted on May 21, 2013 in Alumni News, News, and Sports

David G. Booth, c’68, g’69, chairman and co-CEO of Dimensional Fund Advisors in Austin, Texas, purchased at auction and then promptly donated James Naismith’s original “Rules of Basket Ball” to KU.

So what small item of KU basketball history does he keep close at hand on his office desk? What trip memento could Booth not resist buying while visiting his company’s Beijing office, and why does he encourage employees to leave the office by 5 p.m.?

Booth shared these insights and more in the New York Times’ business feature “There’s a Method to My Desk’s Madness,” which can be read here: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2013/05/18/business/method-to-desk-madness.html.
