Barbara Heritage Appointed Associate Director of Rare Book School

We are very pleased to announce that Barbara Heritage has been appointed Rare Book School’s Associate Director & Curator of Collections.

Barbara has worked at RBS since 2002 in increasingly responsible capacities. “Over many years, Barbara Heritage’s service to Rare Book School has been exemplary,” said Director Michael F. Suarez, S.J. In December 2014, Barbara was graduated from the University of Virginia with her Ph.D. in English literature after completing her dissertation, “Brontë and the Bookmakers: Jane Eyre in the Nineteenth-Century Literary Marketplace.”

“Michael Suarez told me three years ago or so that he would promote me once I had earned my doctoral degree,” Heritage said. “Working a full-time job while pursuing a Ph.D. was very demanding; however, RBS has enriched my research and teaching at every turn. I feel very honored to be recognized by the School. My colleagues and teachers at RBS have been deeply supportive of my studies, and it’s a joy to continue working with them.”

Many congratulations to Barbara!
