The Williams-Harris Endowed Prize in African American Studies

This prize was established on Professor Harry Williams’s 50th birthday to honor his mother, Edith Moselle Harris Williams (1931–1992), his grandmother, Patsy Harris Tunson (1914–1998), and his great-aunt, Ellen Harris Brooks (1909–1998). This prize recognizes their respect for the transformative power of education, the vast richness of their life experiences, and the strength of their characters. The prize recognizes a member of the senior class who has produced a distinguished integrative exercise on any aspect of the African American experience in the New World. Professor Williams has been a member of the Carleton College History department faculty since 1989.
