It is with great sadness that the Department of Government has learned Dr. Manley Elliot Banks passed away at the age of 56.

Banks earned his Ph.D. in 1987 from the Department of Government and was an associate professor in the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs at Virginia Commonwealth University. Banks specialized in urban politics - his dissertation analyzed racial political polarization in Atlanta, Georgia over a 13-year period.

The Department extends its most sincere condolences to family and friends.
