Crisis management marks Thorp's legacy

Holden Thorp is, was and always will be a teacher, a chemist actually. And, effective June 30, 2013, that's the position to which he will return after resigning from his post as Chancellor of the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. It was, in his own words, "the hardest decision of my life", and it came far too soon for many within the academic walls who saw Thorp as a rising star among University leaders -- if there really is such a thing.
