The year 2020 was a complicated one for celebrating an anniversary, especially one as momentous as a fiftieth. Despite tumult, University Press of Mississippi staff and authors took the time, when possible, to reflect on all the Press has accomplished since its founding in 1970. Those accomplishments deserve celebration, and we are proud of the work we have done.
As we look to the next fifty years, I am confident that the Press will adapt and thrive in an ever-changing publishing world, as it has done since its founding. That confidence rests in the dedicated staff, past and present, who put in the hard work every day to keep the Press going as a business and a cultural force, and in our authors and editors, without whom none of this would be possible. I am proud to be the sixth director in the history of University Press of Mississippi, and I am eager to see what comes next.
—Craig W. Gill, Director
