"Charter faculty member leaves legacy of learning"
"When OU Philosophy Professor Richard Burke retires at the end of the 2004-05 academic year, an era will come to an end. The last active member of OU's original faculty, Burke will leave behind an important legacy: a $500,000 endowment funding the Richard Burke Visiting Scholar in Religion, Philosophy and Society. The annual event will bring a major philosophy figure to campus for several days each year to speak and lead seminars on a subject relevant to current events."
