Committee Seeking Successor to Jimmy Jones by Summer An 11-member university-wide committee is being formed to search for a new vice president for human resources. The new vice president will replace Jimmy Jones, who resigned effective Dec. 31. Vice Provost Ed Roulhac is now serving as acting vice president. Eugene S. Sunshine, senior vice president for administration and chair of the search committee, said he hopes a new vice president can be appointed by summer. The committee includes faculty, academic administrators, senior and support staff, and a senior human resources representative. Members are John J. Boland, professor of geography and environmental engineering; C. Alan Lyles, assistant dean of medicine for planning and analysis; Emily F. Frank, associate dean for student affairs at Peabody; Patricia S. Bright, administrative assistant, Office of the Vice President and Secretary. Also, Angela W. Eggleston, senior financial planning analyst in the University Budget Office and president of the Women's Forum; Orion G. Jones, human resources manager for development and alumni relations; Kenneth A. Potocki, assistant to the director for APL improvement; Yvonne M. Theodore, affirmative action officer; and Barbara H. Warren, director of special projects in the Office of the Controller. The name of one additional committee member, a faculty member, will be announced later. Sunshine urged anyone with an opinion on considerations that should guide the search committee to contact any member of the committee or write him at 249 Garland Hall, Homewood.
