With great sadness, the Department of the History of Art & Architecture announces that Dr. Gavin Townsend (Ph.D. 1986) has passed away after a brief illness. Gavin was a student of David Gebhard and wrote his dissertation on "The Tudor House in America:1890-1930." Immediately after graduation, Gavin moved to Tennessee, where he taught as professor of art history at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) until his death. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues.
