Janice Hubbard Harris, Department of English

Ph.D 1973 Brown University

B.A. Stanford University, Phi Beta Kappa

Janice Harris joined the faculty of the Department of English in 1975. She was one of the first advisors to Gays and Lesbians of Wyoming (GLOW) and was among the founding mothers of the College of Arts and Sciences Women's Studies program. She went on to serve as director of Women's Studies and the UW Honors Program and as chair of the Department of English. Nationally recognized for her publications in modern British Literature, Janice developed courses in women's writing, post-colonial studies, and Japanese literature. At the heart of her research and teaching were an unflagging curiosity and commitment to insights gained through study of the arts and humanities. She began many a class and project with Einstein's maxim: "Make things as simple as possible, but no simpler."

2014 Outstanding Alumnus

charlie brown

Charles V. Brown, Political Science, 1968

Heeding the call to "go west young man," Charlie Brown's introduction to Wyoming began in Jackson Hole. As a teen, he hitchhiked from North Carolina to Jackson Lake Lodge in Grand Teton National Park where, for eight summers, he worked as a guide and naturalist on the Snake River. The lure of the Tetons was so strong that Brown transferred from UNC-Chapel Hill to UW. His political science degree helped prepare him for 16 years of public service as a Colorado state representative and Denver city councilman. Brown bleeds brown and gold. He is a lifelong member of the alumni association, Cowboy Joe Club, the President's Society, and he makes annual gifts to support the College of Arts and Sciences Discretionary fund.
