It is with great pleasure to announce that Frank Lewis was awarded the Jonathan Hughes Prize for excellence in the teaching of economic history by the Economic History Association during their annual meetings in Colorado last weekend (September 17th).
The nomination for this international prize came from Frank's students and colleagues at Queen's and other Canadian and international universities. The Hughes Prize is one of the most distinguished awards granted by the EHA, and there is a very competitive pool of scholars nominated (http://eh.net/eha/prizes/jonathan-hughes-prize/).
This prize recognizes Frank's career long contributions to undergraduate and graduate teaching and supervision, and more generally his support for the study of economic history in Canada. It is a great honour befitting Frank's accomplishments in the classroom, so please join in congratulating him.
