Harold W. Billings Staff Honors Endowment
This endowment, funded primarily from proceeds of several University of Texas Libraries book sales, honors staff for their contributions to the University of Texas Libraries. Library materials in the name of the honored staff member are purchased with investment proceeds from this endowment. A commemorative bookplate is placed in each book and a framed copy of the bookplate is given to the person honored.
In August 2003, on the occasion of the retirement of the University of Texas Libraries long-time director, the endowment was renamed the Harold W. Billings Staff Honors Endowment.
