George Washington University has announced that long-time contracts teacher Arthur E. Wilmarth, Jr. (left), has received one of the four university-wide Oscar and Shoshana Trachtenberg Prizes for 2005. Wilmarth, who has been at GW since 1986, also teaches corporations, banking, and legal history. Here’s the description of the award from the press release:
The Trachtenberg Service Award has been presented annually since 1993 to a tenured member of the faculty to recognize exceptional service to the University. Service to be recognized may include active membership in the Faculty Senate, active membership on University committees, and other activities that directly involve institutional governance or the conduct of the University's corporate affairs. Nominations are collected from faculty members. The prize recipient is selected by a committee that includes previous winners, a representative from the Faculty Senate, and individuals nominated by the executive vice president for academic affairs.
