Gilmore appoints three to BOV

From staff reports

A retiring 10-term member of the U.S. Congress, a prominent Virginia lawyer and the founder of a Connecticut investment banking firm are Gov. James Gilmore's new appointments to the University's governing board, announced earlier this week.

Newly named to the 16-member Board of Visitors were:

  • 7th District U.S. Rep. Thomas J. Bliley Jr. (R-Richmond), who recently announced that he would not run for re-election in November. A 1952 graduate of Georgetown University, he will be the board's only non-U.Va. alumnus.

  • Gordon F. Rainey Jr., chair of the Richmond-based Hunton & Williams law firm and immediate past president of the U.Va. Alumni Association. A "double 'Hoo" with a 1962 bachelor's and 1967 law degree, he recently served on Gilmore's blue-ribbon task force on higher education and is a trustee of the U.Va. Law School Foundation.

  • Charles Glazer, founder of C.L. Glazer Co. Inc., an investment management and institutional brokerage firm based in Greenwich, Conn. A member of the Republican National Committee, Glazer served on the executive committee of the Virginia Student Aid Foundation and on the capital campaign's athletic gifts and national leadership councils. At U.Va., he played football for three seasons and earned a commerce degree in 1965. He was a classmate of two current board members, Benjamin P.A. Warthen and William G. Crutchfield Jr., and of University President John T. Casteen III.

In addition, William H. Goodwin Jr. was re-appointed for a second four-year term. Goodwin, from Richmond, chairs CAA Industries, a holding company.

"These individuals share my commitment to ensuring Virginia's colleges and universities remain affordable and accessible for all Virginians," Gov. Gilmore said in his announcement. "This group has demonstrated a commitment of excellence to the University of Virginia."

The newcomers replace three outgoing board members, Albert H. Small of Washington, Champ Clark of Greene County and Henry L. Valentine of Richmond. Small was ineligible for re-appointment, having served two full terms. Clark, who has health problems, and Valentine were eligible for a second term, but were not re-appointed. Gilmore expressed his gratitude for the service of the departing board members.

Small's departure means that the board is now completely composed of appointees of Republican governors, either Gilmore or his predecessor, George F. Allen. Small had been appointed by Democrat L. Douglas Wilder.
