The Tom Regan Papers contains correspondence, research files, drafts, reprints, and audiovisual materials that span the professional career of one of the most widely-known authorities on animal rights. The collection relates chiefly to the two major intellectual pursuits of Tom Regan's career, animal rights and the moral philosophy of G. E. Moore, although there is a limited amount of personal material and unrelated subjects. Also included are files related to his thirty years of service to North Carolina State University. Materials included in the unprocessed series are: One copy of "The Animals Voice Presents The Life and Times of Tom Regan, one brochure from the Culture and Animal Foundation, one dvd of Dr. Raymond Frey, printed email correspondence between Edward Zapala and Tom Regan, one copy of Zapala's thesis entitled "One Million Dogs: Tom Regan, the Worse-Off Principle, and the Abolition of the Use of Animal in Science."

Professor emeritus and former Department Head in the Philosophy Department at North Carolina State University, Tom Regan (1938-2017) was a prolific writer on animal liberation and animal rights philosophy. The publication of Regan's The Case for Animal Rights marked a major advance in the philosophical underpinnings of the animal rights movement. This book brought the discussion of animal rights to new levels of serious attention within scholarly circles.

Biographical/historical note

Professor emeritus and former Department Head in the Philosophy Department at North Carolina State University, Tom Regan (1938-2017) was a prolific writer on animal liberation and animal rights philosophy. The publication of Regan's The Case for Animal Rights marked a major advance in the philosophical underpinnings of the animal rights movement. This book brought the discussion of animal rights to new levels of serious attention within scholarly circles.

Tom Regan was born Thomas Howard Regan on November 28, 1938, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Thiel College in 1960 with a degree in philosophy, and went on to receive both master's (1962) and Ph.D. (1966) degrees from the University of Virginia.

Regan's first professional appointment was as Instructor, and then Assistant Professor of Philosophy, at Sweet Briar College, 1965-1967. In 1967, he accepted the position of Assistant Professor of Philosophy at North Carolina State University. He was promoted to Associate Professor of Philosophy in 1972, and to Professor of Philosophy in 1978. Regan served as Head, Department of Philosophy and Religion, North Carolina State University, from 1996 to 1999.

During his more than thirty years on the faculty of NC State, Regan received numerous awards for excellence in teaching; published scores of professional papers as well as more than twenty books; been awarded major international awards for film writing and direction; and presented hundreds of lectures throughout the United States and abroad. He was named the recipient of the Alexander Quarles Holladay Medal, the highest honor NC State University can bestow on one of its faculty.

Regan's contributions to professional organizations and scholarship are significant. He was a member of numerous professional societies, and has held a variety of offices in them, including the North Carolina Philosophical Society; the American Society for Value Inquiry; the Society for the Study of Ethics and Animals; Ethics and Values in Science and Technology; and the American Philosophical Association's Committee on Medical Ethics. He served on the editorial boards of a number of journals, including, Ethics, The Australian Journal of Professional and Applied Ethics, and Ethics and the Environment.

Among his books, two (The Case for Animal Rights and Bloomsbury's Prophet: G. E. Moore and the Development of His Moral Philosophy) were nominated for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. The Case for Animal Rights was immediately recognized as a "modern classic" when it first appeared in 1983. It has been translated into several languages, including Swedish, Dutch, Italian, and German. Other of Tom Regan's books that touch on the topic of animal rights are All That Dwell Therein: Essays on Animal Rights and Environmental Ethics (1982) and Animal Sacrifices: Religious Perspectives on the Use of Animals in Science (1986).

For its part, Bloomsbury's Prophet has helped re-energize and re-direct Moorean scholarship in particular and the study of early twentieth century British philosophy in general. In addition to Bloomsbury's Prophet, Tom Regan's other major contributions to Moorean scholarship are Moore: The Early Essays (1987) and G. E. Moore: The Elements of Ethics (1991). He was co-founder and president of the Moore Society.

Tom Regan's major film awards include the Silver Medal for We Are All Noah (International Film Festival of New York, 1986) and the Gold Medal for Voices I Have Heard (Houston International Film Festival, 1988).

A past recipient of a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship, and a past Fellow of the National Humanities Center, Regan's recently published work includes Defending Animal Rights and (with Carl Cohen) The Animal Rights Debate.

Tom Regan was married to the former Nancy Tirk, with whom he co-founded The Culture & Animals Foundation.

Scope/content

This collection contains correspondence, research files, drafts, published articles, audio visual materials, and artifacts. The primary foci of the collection are Tom Regan's two lifelong professional interests: Animal Rights, and the moral philosophy of G. E. Moore.These two subjects are treated fully through Regan's notes, writings, and presentations, as well as film and audio projects. Materials included in the unprocessed series are: One copy of "The Animals Voice Presents The Life and Times of Tom Regan, one brochure from the Culture and Animal Foundation, one dvd of Dr. Raymond Frey, printed email correspondence between Edward Zapala and Tom Regan, one copy of Zapala's thesis entitled "One Million Dogs: Tom Regan, the Worse-Off Principle, and the Abolition of the Use of Animal in Science." Also included are some unprocessed materials that include an undated VHS videotape and the VHS video tape (undated) and the program pamphlet: Tom Regan: A Celebration.

Arrangement

Original order has been maintained where possible throughout the collection. The designated series reflect the groupings created by Regan. Wherever possible all materials related to a specific publication, public appearance, or University course have been placed in those respective series. The two exceptions to this general rule are the personal and the professional series. The former contains correspondence from family members and others unconnected to Regan's professional life, and the latter contains correspondence that treat Regan's general professional career. Because of the variety of materials and the size of the collection the specific organizing rationale can be found in the series descriptions.

The series for this collection are:

  • Personal Papers
  • Research
  • Writings
  • Public Appearances
  • University
  • Professional
  • Reprints and Publications
  • Audiovisual Materials
  • Artifacts
  • Oversized Materials
