Professor Thomas Taylor spent forty years working as a specialist in Middle-Eastern, African, and East Asian history for the Department of History and Political Science before retiring in 2020.  Professor Taylor was a fixture of the Norwich classroom and beloved by his students, as demonstrated by his receipt of Norwich’s Dodge Award for Excellence in Teaching in 1985. He was held in high regard by the faculty at Norwich, spending ten years as chair of the History & Political Science department and another ten years as dean of the School of Social Sciences. Professor Taylor was also instrumental in the creation of the International Studies and Studies in War and Peace degree programs. Tom was a, friend, colleague, and mentor. His contributions and leadership over his four decades at Norwich have helped transform the History & Political Science department.

Please make a gift to ensure his legacy at Norwich endures forever. Our goal is to raise $15,000 to engrave a bench on campus in his memory. Thank you for your support!
