David Levy

David Levy, the official historian for the University of Oklahoma, is known as one of the finest classroom teachers ever to serve on their faculty. In addition to his publication of Volume I The University of Oklahoma: A Centennial History, Levy is a David Ross Boyd Professor, a Sam K. Viersen Presidential Professor, and an Irene and Julian Rothbaum Professor of History.  Levy’s significance to O.U. was revealed by the selection of his statue as one of forty-seven niche figures displayed on the campus’s Gothic buildings as “major players in the history of the University.” Now retired, Levy serves on the Norman City Planning Commission. He was inducted into the Oklahoma Higher Education Hall of Fame in 2006.
