Administrative History

The M. Thelma McAndless Distinguished Professor Chair in the Humanities was established in EMU's College of Arts and Sciences in 1985 through a $150,000 bequest from the estate of McAndless, who was a 1925 EMU alumna and a faculty member in EMU's Department of English Language and Literature. In her will, she directed that the income from her bequest be used to augment compensation of distinguished artists and scholars in the humanities, brought to campus by special appointment for an average of one semester.
