History honor society inductions and inaugural C. Dallett Hemphill Prize

At the History Department’s annual awards dinner on Thursday, April 21, seventeen students were inducted into Phi Alpha Theta, the national history honor society, and six seniors were recognized with graduation prizes, including the inaugural C. Dallett Hemphill Prize.

As usual, the History Phi Alpha Theta/Awards Dinner was a convivial celebration. Faculty, students, and members of Dallett Hemphill’s family came together to eat, drink, and recognize our students’ hard work and achievements and remember Professor Hemphill’s legacy.
