University should reconsider Biddle tenure decision

Librarians do not usually speak out publicly on tenure decisions, but having been the University's military history bibliographer for nearly 25 years, I feel both qualified and compelled to write in support of Tami Biddle, an assistant professor in the history department.

From the beginning of her time at Duke I had first-hand knowledge of her teaching style, dedication to the learning and scholarship of her students, and commitment to the serious study of military history. She is a worthy warrior in a continuing line of military historians that has brought Duke international recognition. I strongly urge the University to reconsider its tenure decision in her case.
