Learn more about Win Horner:
After writing many books, holding various offices, and receiving awards for her teaching and scholarship, Winifred Bryan Horner was the first occupant of the Lillian Radford Chair of Rhetoric and Composition at Texas Christian University, holding this position from 1985 to 1993. She is remembered for her master teaching, her compelling scholarship, and her valuable mentorship, both at TCU and in the wider world of rhetorical studies.
Dr. Richard L. Enos, current Radford chair and WBH advisor, recently reflected on the legacy of Dr. Win Horner:
The factual data recording the career achievements that earned Winfred Bryan Horner an international reputation in rhetoric can be easily retrieved from even a cursory view of her curriculum vitae. This data, however, does not capture well the personal dimension that earned Win the love and admiration of students and colleagues. Win Horner was a beloved pioneer in many respects. Having already attained an established career at The University of Missouri, Win returned to graduate school in mid-career and received her Ph.D. from The University of Michigan. She is a model for those who have the commitment and courage to purse academic goals at any age. Win promoted a return to the study of Rhetoric in English departments and helped, in the process, to change higher education. She was a Past President of the Rhetoric Society of America (1988-89) and, among her many achievements in that organization, was a driving force in revising the RSA Constitution. Win was an example and advocate for the place, rights, and importance of Rhetoric and Composition in higher education. Not only her students, but also the discipline as a whole, saw Win as a model for women educators. In 1989, for example, Win Horner was one of the founders of the Coalition of Women (now Feminist) Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition. In terms of our own university, Win Horner held the first Lillian Radford Chair of Rhetoric and Composition at TCU. Win Horner was both respected and loved by her students. Many of the TCU alumni/ae in Rhetoric and Composition who are leaders in our field studied under Win Horner. Her engaging personality made the English Department at TCU feel like a family and the discipline feel like a community. One of the honors that she most appreciated was having the TCU graduate students name their Rhetoric Society of American student chapter after her. Today the Winifred B. Horner Student Chapter of the Rhetoric Society of America remains as a living testimonial of the love and respect Win earned not only in our discipline but especially here at TCU.
