Retired University of Mississippi history and Southern Studies professor Ted Ownby often talks of his fondness for former students, and now those students can make history by providing for future scholars through the Ted Ownby Initiative to Support Graduate Education.

By establishing the Ted Ownby Initiative to Support Graduate Education, graduate students in the years to come will have the opportunity to research and document in an interdisciplinary program. Ownby has always known that history matters, just as the future of Southern studies does.

Our Ignite campaign aims to raise $5,000 in the next month.

Please pay tribute to Ted Ownby’s incredible career and invest in the future of UM graduate students. Click here to give today!
