The Martin and Brooke Stein Professorship Richard Bidlack
The Martin and Brooke Stein Professorship was established in 2007 to support a distinguished professor who is an accomplished scholar and especially an exceptional teacher, with a first preference for a faculty member in the Department of History and a secondary preference for a faculty member in the Williams School of Commerce, Economics and Politics. The Professorship is managed by the Provost in consultation with the deans of the College and the Williams School. The endowment is the gift of Martin E. Stein '74 and his wife Brooke in honor of esteemed faculty members the Steins consider model teachers and scholars who have been influential in the lives of countless Washington and Lee students: William A. Jenks, H. Marshall Jarrett, and Henry P. Porter, Jr. The Steins established the Martin and Brooke Stein Professorship in response to the Lenfest Challenge for Faculty Support.
