On Friday, December 26th, the Santa Fe New Mexican published an article on the D. H. Lawrence Ranch Initiatives.
I have been named co-chair of the Ranch Initiatives, along with R. Gary Smith, Associate Director of the Physical Plant Department at UNM.
The purpose of the ranch initiatives is to preserve the legacy of novelist D.H. Lawrence and his wife, Frieda Lawrence. Widely considered one of the most important writers of the twentieth century, the British novelist owned only one piece of property in his lifetime, a 160-acre ranch located some fifteen miles outside of Taos, N.M. which was bequeathed to UNM by Frieda Lawrence. Fundamental to the mission of the ranch initiatives is preservation of the property and historic buildings.
