Louis E. Lord Creativity Award in Classics

Beginning in 2016, the Department of Classics will be awarding the Louis E. Lord Creativity Award in Classics, thanks to a generous gift from Joel Dean (OC ’64) and his family; the award will go “to one senior Classics major who will be most likely to use their classical education at Oberlin College in a highly creative and innovative way at the outset of their career. Classical skill sets could include: historical world perspective, linguistic novelty, critical analysis of texts or objects, and close reading with attention to detail, which together tend to nurture a realistic entrepreneurial spirit.”
