William Anthony Conservation Fund

The William Anthony Conservation Fund is an endowment established through the perceptive and generous support of Julie Scott and James Fluck to honor the legacy of Bill Anthony, the first Conservator of the Libraries. Gifts to the William Anthony Conservation Fund help support ongoing conservation activities and special projects and to the Friends of the Libraries help fund non-budgeted priorities that help strengthen the Libraries’ resources and services for students and faculty.
