J. Kent Calder, New TSHA Executive Director

Texas State Historical Association

Names J. Kent Calder

Executive Director

The news release from the Univeristy of North Texas partially states

"J. Kent Calder, right, director of Arizona State University’s Scholarly Publishing Program, was named the executive director of the Texas State Historical Association, which will be housed at UNT beginning this fall. Calder, who was selected after a national search, will begin his full-time position July 1. As executive director, he will be responsible for representing the association at public and governmental functions, managing its personnel, leading strategic planning and other initiatives of the Board of Directors and developing and implementing the association’s annual budget and fund raising activities. "


"Calder, a Fort Worth native, was the TSHA’s director of publications from 2003 to 2006 before being hired by ASU. He says he is honored to be chosen by the Board of Directors to lead the TSHA as it moves to UNT."


"Fran Vick, TSHA president, says Calder "brings a lot of enthusiasm and a wealth of knowledge" to his new position, after holding management positions with the Indiana and Wisconsin Historical Societies. "He knows other state associations, but he also knows TSHA. We're thrilled to death to have him," Vick says."
