Lander MacClintock Memorial Award

Lander MacClintock Memorial Award

Lander MacClintock was professor of both French and Italian in the department from 1920 to his retirement in 1960. He received B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Chicago, and his scholarly works and editions include The Age of Pirandello (1951), Sainte-Beuve's Critical Theory and Practice, and The Contemporary Drama of Italy. He was a life-long devotee of the arts and music, from his early days of touring with the San Carlos Opera Company to his organization of a special exhibit in conjunction with the Orchestre National of France performing on campus in 1948. Most of our awards are specifically for undergraduate or graduate students, and specifically for achievement in French or Italian. However, the Lander MacClintock Award is given alternately to a French student and to an Italian student, and it can be awarded to either an undergraduate or a graduate student.
