Frank and Tina Kastor

Frank and Tina Kastor: As Dean, I appointed Frank who at the time was at Northern Illinois University as Chair of the Department of English—the largest department in the College.  Imagine, a Chairman of an English department who is still friends with the former Dean; if you think this odd, you don’t know English departments.  Frank managed them masterfully; as scholar of 15th century English literature continues to research and publish; Tina is a linguist, who I also appointed to the faculty.  If I remember correctly, she was the first person to be appointed to the faculty with this specialization; her research focuses on applied language studies—understanding literacy and linguistic development (yes, the English department ‘actually’ agreed on appointments for both of them).
