Dr. Thomas K. Keefe (1946-1998) was a Chicago native who came to Appalachian State University in 1978 after earning his Ph.D. under Warren Hollister at the University of California--Santa Barbara. A specialist in Anglo-Norman history, Tom achieved a reputation as a scholar of the first rank on both sides of the Atlantic. In 1995, he won the History department's I.G. Greer Distinguished Professorship in History award. He was an authority on the reign of Henry II, bringing to the study of this Plantagenet king and his sons not only the passion and skills of a classic scholar but also the latest in quantitative analysis of their reigns.
