John Lehner, associate dean of personnel, planning, and systems, has been selected as the inaugural recipient of the Ambassador Kenneth Franzheim II Endowed Library Professorship. The professorship was established to support a full-time librarian in the MD Anderson Library at the University of Houston. The candidate must have exceeded the requirements to achieve the rank of full professor, or full librarian, and must be recognized as an individual who has advanced their discipline, who is regarded for leadership, and whose opinions are highly respected. Lehner’s scholarship is widely noted for its careful analysis of the dynamic landscape of human resource administration. Professional library associations, such as ACRL, and research library consortia, such as the Association of Research Libraries, frequently call upon Lehner’s knowledge in creating standards and guidelines, developing initiatives, and enhancing programs in human resource endeavors. His areas of expertise range from diversity to executive leadership to workforce development. Kenneth Franzheim II was a Houston oilman and philanthropist. He served as ambassador to New Zealand, Western Samoa, Tonga, and Fiji from 1969 to 1972.
