Cary C. Boshamer Distinguished Professorship awarded to Blossom Damania

Congratulations to Blossom Damania, who has just been named the Cary C. Boshamer Distinguished Professor of Microbiology & Immunology. These endowed professorships were established in 1969 by Cary Carlisle Boshamer, a member of the class of 1917. Boshamer was a textile industrialist and a generous donor to UNC, and his gifts included the Diamond Heels baseball stadium that bears his name. He also served as a trustee of the UNC system from 1969 until 1972 and as a Carolina trustee in 1973.
