In Memory of Dr. Teresa Lozano Long

We at UT Press, and our extended family of authors, are deeply saddened by the recent passing of Dr. Teresa Lozano Long. Teresa lived an amazing, long life, and, in partnership with her husband Joe, provided essential support to so many institutions of culture and learning at the University of Texas and beyond.
At UT Press, we have been lucky to have Teresa on our Advisory Board for many years; all those who have spent time with her at our gatherings have benefited from her warmth, intelligence, and generosity. In addition, Teresa and Joe gave us a gift that will last forever when they launched, in 2001, the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Endowment in Latin American and Latino Art and Culture. The first book in that series, Martha Menchaca’s Recovering History, Constructing Race: The Indian, Black, and White Roots of Mexican Americans, was published in early 2002, and in the nearly twenty years since, over eighty additional books have been published with the support of the endowment. We will always be grateful for the Longs’ incredible gift to UT Press, and we look forward to honoring Teresa’s lifelong love of learning through the publication of many, many more endowment-supported books in the decades to come.
