The James E. and Ruth Ann Boggs Endowment was established by Dr. and Mrs. Boggs in 1998. Jim Boggs was a member of the Chemistry Dept. faculty from 1953 until his death in 2013. He was deeply interested in the quality of our library. His wife Ruth Ann was a former librarian. Further gifts from the Boggs family and other alumni continue to grow the fund.
This endowment has been used to purchase numerous monographs and reference sets in both print and electronic formats, and continues to be a key part of the library's available funding.
The Aubrey E. Skinner Library Endowment was established in 1985 to honor the legacy of UT's longtime chemistry librarian, who headed the Mallet Chemistry Library from 1951 to 1985.
Funds from this endowment have enabled the purchase of many large reference works over the past four decades, including Chemical Abstracts Collective Indexes, as well as hundreds of monographs and special acquisitions in both print and electronic formats.
