Hal Box, one of our Libraries Advisory Council members and a former Dean of the School of Architecture has passed away. The University of Texas Libraries has lost a dear friend and advocate, and we join with our colleagues across the University in mourning his passing.
Among his many honors and awards, Hal was also recognized by the University of Texas; The Hal Box Endowed Chair in Urbanism was established at the university in 1999 and the Texas Exes Alumni Association bestowed on Box its highest honor, the Distinguished Alumnus Award, in 2003.
