Libraries

Dr. Mark H. Danley, associate professor and catalog librarian, co-edited and contributed a chapter to The Seven Years' War: Global Views (Brill, 2012). The book reaches beyond traditional approaches to illuminate the conflict as world war and includes aspects of the Seven Years' War beyond the usual emphasis on Frederick the Great's campaigns and the war in North America.  Danley's work was supported by a University of Memphis Faculty Research Grant in 2006-2007, as well as by grants from the Lewis Walpole Library of Yale University and from the Society of the Cincinnati Library, Washington, D.C.

Edwin G. Frank, assistant professor and curator of Special Collections, was invited by the Chickasaw Bluff chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution to speak about the University Libraries' rare holdings. Frank's presentation highlighted the historical significance of 19th-century maps of Tennessee and Memphis, a World War II POW newspaper and L'Idolatrie Huguenotre, a 17th-century volume bound in human skin.

Loewenberg School of Nursing

Dr. Annapoorna Mary, assistant professor, published "Impact of Age, Gender and Comorbidities in Cardiopulmonary Indicators and Dysfunctional Ventilator Weaning Response after CABG" in International Journal of Current Research.
