Stepping down – Headed $22M drive

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — Robert Conner, who has headed the National Humanities Center in Research Triangle Park since 1989, will resign in September 2002.

Connor, a classics scholar who previously taught at Princeton, oversaw a big growth in the center.

Created in 1978 as a private, independent institute for advanced study in the humanities, the center in June 2000 completed a $22 million fundraising campaign two years ahead of scheduled.

The campaign endowed 16 new fellowships for the center, which supports 42 fellows on an annual budget of more than $4 million.
