The University of Missouri has rehired the ousted editor of the academic press it decided not to close. Clair Willcox is back in as editor-in-chief of the University of Missouri Press.
Some of his main duties will include managing the editorial department, serving as the acquisitions editor, and promoting the overall goals of the press.
Ned Stuckey-French helped lead the “Coalition to save the University of Missouri Press.” French says the press has a long road ahead it and Willcox is the only one who can lead it going forward.
