ACTION ITEMS

The President will propose resolutions establishing five professorships and a resolution to change the name of a sixth professorship.

The five new professorships are:

  1. The Edward F. Howrey Professorship in Law, which is to be established with a bequest from the late Edward F. Howrey, a prominent member of the Washington Bar and a former Chairman of the Federal Trade Commission.
  1. The Frances Myers Ball Professorship, to be in the Cardiovascular Division of the School of Medicine; the Chair is a bequest of the late Mrs. Ball of Charlottesville.

  2. The B. Lewis Barnett, Jr. Professorship in Family Medicine. Dr. Barnett, Chairman of the Department of Family Medicine in the Medical School and Family Practitioner-in-Chief at the University Hospital, is retiring from the faculty this spring. The Barnett Chair is being established in his honor by friends of his.

  3. The Rouhollah K. Ramazani Professorship in Arabian Peninsula and Gulf Studies. Several friends of the University have made generous gifts to found this Chair, which represents a significant step in establishing Gulf Studies at the University. Professor Ramazani, a distinguished member of the faculty since 1954, is an internationally recognized authority in this area.

  4. The Linda K. Bunker Professorship, in the Curry School of Education. The Chair, a gift of Ms. Deborah Slaner Larkin of Pelham, New York, honors the work of Professor Bunker, a member of the Curry School faculty since 1973.

The President will propose that the Distinguished Professorship in Internal Medicine be renamed the David D. Stone Professorship in Internal Medicine. The Chair, established in 1985 with a gift from the late Mrs. Nettie Marie Jones, is being renamed in honor of Dr. Stone, as Mrs. Jones wished.
