The History Community was saddened to hear of the passing of Doug Walker, a member of the History Advisory Board, a group of community representatives that advocates for the department in the wider community. Doug and his wife, Maggie, were great supporters of the department. They created the Walker Family Endowed Professorship in History to support the study of the U.S. Civil War and southern U.S. history.
