Interim director appointed for Notre Dame Press

by Dennis Brown

Harv Humphrey has been appointed interim director of the University of Notre Dame Press. He replaces Barbara Hanrahan, who left the University at the end of June.

Humphrey, who earned bachelor’s and master of business administration degrees from Notre Dame, is a consultant on organizational management and financial analysis. His work has ranged from broadcast media to industrial experience in the energy and housing sectors. Humphrey’s expertise in process development will enhance the press’ ability to bring to print the many manuscripts presently in-house.

Notre Dame Press is the largest Catholic university press in the world, with 1,000 books in print and some 60 new titles annually. It publishes in areas that complement the University’s graduate programs, centers and institutes, with current projects focusing on theology, medieval studies, philosophy, peace studies, modern poetry, Latin American studies, history, and Irish and Irish American studies.

Notre Dame faculty contribute their expertise as reviewers and series editors on numerous books published by the press.

The University will conduct a national search for a new managing director.
