Honoring a Legend in Florida History

A picture of Dr. Michael GannonThis April, the History Department was sad to learn of the passing of our former colleague, Dr. Michael Gannon. In recognition of his long career and his many contributions to the field of Florida history and to the University of Florida, the Department will hold a memorial service at the Baughman Center on the campus of the University of Florida at 5 p.m. on Friday, 25 August 2017.  There will be several speakers who will talk about Dr. Gannon’s work and his impact on both the scholarly community, his students, and the public.  This service is open to the general public and there is parking available near the Administration Building adjacent to the Baughman Center.
