UNC Press Announces Wyndham Robertson Editorial Director Endowment

Friends and family of Wyndham Robertson have endowed the Press’s editorial director position in honor of their dear friend who is also a long-time friend of the Press. More news of this announcement can be read here. This endowed position will give the Press editorial director time to engage in broader scholarly publishing discussions, and will give the Press additional independence to publish the books that need to be published. As we approach our 100th anniversary in 2022, this incredible initiative celebrates the Press’s past accomplishments and its promise for the future while recognizing the many contributions of Wyndham Robertson.
