President Obama on Thursday nominated William (Bro) Adams, president of Maine's Colby College, to be chair of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Early in his career, Adams taught political philosophy. He rose through a series of administrative jobs and was president of Bucknell University for five years before moving to the Colby presidency in 2000. Adams announced in January that he would be stepping down from the Colby presidency -- and the college prepared this webpage with information on his accomplishments.
