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 ’64 and his family.

The award will be presented “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.”
