d14-2864 - Charles & Elvis, Tupelo Room, CSSC, U of Mississippi, 4/8/14.The Center and History Department Launch An Ignite Campaign for the Charles Reagan Wilson Fund

In honor of Dr. Wilson’s retirement in May 2014 and long career supporting and guiding students, we created the Charles Reagan Wilson Graduate Student Support Fund, which will provide financial support for graduate students engaged in research in southern history. Students from both the Arch Dalrymple III Department of History and Center for the Study Southern Culture’s Southern Studies program will benefit from these funds.

From April 11 – May 11, supporters can contribute to the Ignite Ole Miss Campaign for the Fund.

During his 33 years as a professor, Dr. Charles Reagan Wilson has been a mentor for many University of Mississippi students studying southern history and culture, and has served on at least a hundred thesis and dissertation committees, often as chair. At graduation in May 2014, we dedicated and named the thesis defense room in Barnard the Charles Reagan Wilson Room.

Contact Becca Walton at rwalton@olemiss.edu with any questions about the Fund.
