Promotion to Professor 2013

Prof. Christopher Morris, History, was invited by the Library to choose an item to add to the Library's collection on the occasion of their Promotion to Professor.

Prof. Morris chose Citizen Sherman: a life of William Tecumseh Sherman by Michael Fellman, New York: Random House, 1995.

Prof. Morris's remarks on this item:
"Michael Fellman was a dear friend, who gave me my first job in Vancouver, British Columbia, many years ago. While I was learning the ropes as a beginning professor, he was on sabbatical writing his book on Sherman. I shared his office and work and so much more with Michael that year. I loved the book when it appeared a year or two later, and I came to love Michael very much. He died tragically in June 2012. He visited UTA once, to give a talk on Robert E. Lee to Phi Alpha Theta, the History Honor Society, and on that occasion several of my students got to see some of what I saw in Michael Fellman, a wonderful teacher, a brilliant scholar of the Civil War era, and a great friend and mentor. And so I dedicate this biography of William Sherman to Michael Fellman."
