Dr Irene W. Crowe appointed Honorary Fellow

8th January 2008

The Centre is delighted to announce that Dr Irene W. Crowe PhD has accepted our invitation to become an Honorary Fellow. Dr Crowe is an international philanthropist with an outstanding record of support for animal protection. She is President of the prestigious Pettus-Crowe Foundation, based in Washington D.C., which has supported a range of pioneering charitable work for many decades. Periodically, the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics invites an individual, who has made an outstanding contribution to the Centre or to the field of animal ethics to become an Honorary Fellow. Our first Honorary Fellow is Professor J. M. Coetzee, the Nobel Laureate for Literature. Commenting on the appointment, Professor Linzey said: “We are thrilled by Dr Crowe’s acceptance. The truth is that animal ethics cannot make any progress without the support of generous individuals who see the importance of our work and who have the cause of animals at heart. We are honoured that Dr Crowe has agreed to be associated with us”.
