Friends and colleagues gathered Monday, December 11th, to celebrate the career of Therese Dolan (Ph.D. History of Art ’79) who has retired as Professor of Art History from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University. Professor Dolan taught at Temple for nearly forty years. The honorific reception was packed with faculty, administrative colleagues (including Temple’s president), and students. Her service is etched into the legacy of Temple’s Department of Art History. In speeches in her honor, her colleagues noted that Professor Dolan was long admired for her work on behalf of the Temple community as Chair of the Department of Art History (1998-2004) and then as Interim Dean of the Tyler School of Art (2008-09).
The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences congratulates Professor Dolan and wishes her the warmest regards looking forward into retirement.
