Virginia Massey Bowden and Charles Lee Bowden share a deep passion for empowering others to expand their knowledge and strengthen their minds. Helping others achieve these goals became their life’s work. But they were inspired to do even more. They established the Virginia & Charles Bowden Endowed Professorship in Librarianship in 2020 through a securities gift to the School of Information (iSchool) at The University of Texas at Austin.
