Congratulations to associate professor of history, Stephen Berry:

Noted historian Stephen Berry has been named the inaugural holder of the Amanda and Greg Gregory Chair in the Civil War Era in the University of Georgia Franklin College of Arts and Sciences.

Berry, the author of four books on the Civil War era, joined the university's department of history in 2007 and was selected as the Gregory chair after a national search.

"I can think of no UGA scholar more worthy of this honor than Steve Berry," said UGA President Michael F. Adams. "He is a historian of the first order, and his research and writing have helped not only thousands of students but also many people, like myself, who have an ongoing interest in the Civil War. I am deeply grateful to the Gregorys for their generosity to the university and support of this important position in the history department."

Besides being an oustanding professor and writer, Berry is a great campus colleague. One of many, we are very grateful to have him at UGA. Congratulations and thanks to Amanda and Greg Gregory for their generous support for the University and for Franklin College.
