Dr. J. David DeLozier, Dean of the Graduate School 

His passing is a great loss to the university.  He was a major financial contributor and had a true love and passion for the Great Books.

Dr. Delozier, over his very successful career in engineering and Wall Street finance, has created a “short-list” of books that will change your life for the better. The books listed here will only consume approximately twelve inches of your self-space and will enhance the quality of your life and career to a size that is immeasurable

Dr. Delozier entitled his list:
