Books Supported by the Philip Gossett Publication Fund
This fund supports books on music that embody the high scholarly standards of its namesake, the renowned opera historian, teacher, and editor Philip Gossett (1941-2017). Gossett was the Robert W. Reneker Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus of Music and former Dean of the Division of Humanities at the University of Chicago. Publications supported by the fund range from musicological studies to critical editions published by the Press, including The Works of Giuseppe Verdi. The fund was established in 2018 with the support of family, friends, and former colleagues and students of Philip Gossett. The Franke Family Charitable Foundation has provided a generous inaugural gift.
