The Department of History is saddened by the loss of former colleagues Harry Paul (12 October) and Bert Wyatt-Brown (4 November) in recent weeks. Please read the Gainesville Sun’s remembrance of Paul, written by Professor Betty Smocovitis. Professor William Link, who succeeded Bert Wyatt-Brown as the Milbauer Chair in Southern History here at the University of Florida, offers this assessment of Wyatt-Brown’s impact as a scholar and mentor [pdf].
