Biographical/Historical Note

The University of Florida Press was founded in 1944 to handle publications produced by Florida faculty. It quickly evolved into a broader academic press. The Board of Managers met for the first time on January 5, 1945. The University of Florida Press later became part of the University Presses of Florida and, along with the academic presses of the other state universities, was eventually subsumed by the University Press of Florida.
