E-Book review:
In a narrative firmly grounded in the written record and argued with the keenness of a lawyer's brief, Berkley Duck leads his reader patiently and persuasively through the course of this complex tale-one in which the author himself played a substantial role. Along the way, he identifies the ways whereby a charitable arrangement can incrementally drift far from its original moorings; makes a vigorous case for the moral obligations inherent in a fiduciary relationship; and demonstrates that it is possible, but far from easy, to rectify a legal relationship gone wrong. The author does not shy away from arguing on behalf of his side; nonetheless, he readily and graciously acknowledges that the compromise which resolved this dispute made for good public policy-a position that has a refreshing ring given our current polarized society. Those who plan to give charitably, as well those whose responsibility it is to manage charitable gifts, should put Twilight at Conner Prairie at the top of their reading lists. (J. Michael Hittle, Professor Emeritus of History, Lawrence University )

For anyone who has ever been associated with museums or not-for-profits, Twilight at Conner Prairie is a must-read case study, as well as a gripping emotional saga of the fight over Conner Prairie, an outdoor history museum and treasured community asset. Berkley Duck’s book, part memoir, part legal analysis, chronicles the spellbinding tale of one of the most astounding governance showdowns in the history of museums. Having lived through this period of upheaval in person, I can attest that Berkley’s account is scrupulously fair and accurate – unbelievable as it is. (Ellen M. Rosenthal, President and CEO, Conner Prairie )

Twilight at Conner Prairie is a superb case study of competing visions for one of America's finest history museums. With the skills of a lawyer and historian and the first-hand knowledge of a participant, Berkley Duck shows how volunteer leadership battled to save a threatened cultural institution.
(James H. Madison, Author of Eli Lilly: A Biography )

Twilight at Conner Prairie by Berkley W. Duck III is a cautionary tale that will have wide appeal for anyone concerned with the survival of museums and historical sites as non-profit educational institutions.
(Northwest Ohio History ) Berkley W. Duck, III serves on the Board of Directors for Conner Prairie Museum, Inc. and as Chairman of the Board for Conner Prairie Foundation, Inc. He also served as Chairman of the Board and President of Save the Prairie, Inc., a non-profit corporation organized to secure the independence of Conner Prairie from Earlham College.
