Books Supported by the Bevington Fund
The Bevington Fund helps publish work by emerging scholars and is used in support of first books, particularly in the humanities. The fund was established in 2006 with a $100,000 gift by David and Peggy Bevington, which has been augmented by students, friends, and a foundation. David Bevington (1931–2019) was the Phyllis Fay Horton Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus in the Department of English at the University of Chicago and a leading authority on English Renaissance literature. Peggy was for nearly three decades a teacher in the nursery school at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools.
