U. of Missouri Press to Close

The University of Missouri Press will close its doors after more than five decades in operation, The Columbia Daily Tribune reports. Timothy M. Wolfe, president of the University of Missouri system, announced the closure on Thursday. The press, which has published about 2,000 books since it opened, in 1958, will begin phasing out operations in July. In 2009 the press cut nearly half its staff, but it was still unable to operate without a deficit. Ten employees will be affected by the closure.
