Honoring two generous professors

JON BRIDGMAN
DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD
PRESENTED BY UW ALUMNI ASSOCIATION

For the past 40 years, Professor Emeritus Jon Bridgman delighted students and alumni alike with his dazzling lectures that made history come alive. Bridgman, who is being honored with the 2014 UWAA Distinguished Service Award for giving the History Lecture Series for so many years, is making history of his own this year—he won the award in 1995 as well, making him the first person to receive the honor twice. He also received a Distinguished Teaching Award in 1973.

RICHARD MORRILL
DISTINGUISHED RETIREE AWARD
PRESENTED BY UW & UW RETIREMENT ASSOCIATION

Professor Emeritus Richard Morrill, ’57, ’59, continues to leave an imprint on the UW landscape. That’s why he is being honored with the 2014 UW and UW Retirement Association Distinguished Excellence in Community Service Award. Morrill has conducted electoral analysis and has shown commitment to addressing inequality and poverty. He continues to mentor colleagues, and he established the UW Morrill Fund for Scientific Geography, which has raised more than $30,000.
