William Brooks, a retired chair of the Composition-Theory Division in the School of Music, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, established the Howard D. and Marjorie I. Brooks Endowment for Progressive Thought in honor of his parents. Howard was a mathematics and science teacher and later superintendent of the Amity school dis¬trict, which embraced Orange, Woodbridge, and Bethany, Connecticut, while Marjorie was an avid horticulturist and Life Judge in the National Garden Club. Both Howard and Marjorie were passionate environmentalists, lifelong educators, and advocates for an inclusive, just society. This fund supports publications featuring progres¬sive thought, broadly conceived and embracing works on education, the environment, intellectual history, music, labor, and related fields.
