Bill Powers, President of The University of Texas at Austin, shared the below communication with faculty and staff today:
I am pleased to announce that Tom Staley has agreed to stay on as director of the Harry Ransom Center. Tom was previously scheduled to retire on August 31 of this year.
Tom is one of the world’s most highly respected library directors, and under his leadership the Ransom Center has celebrated the humanities, advanced scholarship, expanded our collections, and brought great distinction to the University.
I know that many people on our campus will join me in welcoming this news.
