A number of our esteemed colleagues at the School of Architecture are retiring this year. Accumulatively, they represent over 150 years of service to the university, and the impact of their work in the School of Architecture community is immeasurable.

At UT Arlington since 1975, Bill Boswell also served as visiting professor at Washington University in St. Louis in 1990. Professor Boswell is the past chairman of the Promotion and Tenure Committee and has also served on other university committees too numerous to list during his tenure.

Professor Robinette is the author of nineteen books and a number of other professional publications on landscape architecture.
