Return to CLAS Donor Report

In order to recognize the outstanding contributions of "a master teacher and scholar," friends and colleagues of History professor Gus Burns, who died April 30, 1999, have established an annual history lecture series in his name. "It is our hope that the Gus Burns Memorial Lecture Fund will attract outstanding scholars to the University of Florida," says Florida Studies Director Julian Pleasants, a long-time colleague of Burns. Each invited scholar will give one public address and will also meet with graduate and undergraduate classes. Tax deductible donations to the fund (#007613) can be made through the University of Florida Foundation.
