Congratulations to Dr. Andrea L. Turpin, 2016 Guittard Book Award

Congratulations to Dr. Andrea L. Turpin, Associate Professor of History, for winning the 2016 Guittard Book Award for Historical Scholarship for her book, A New Moral Vision: Gender, Religion, and the Changing Purposes of American Higher Education, 1837-1917 (Cornell University Press, 2016). A dinner reception was held on October 11, 2017 to recognize Dr. Turpin, the 2017-2018 Guittard Fellows, and the recipients of the Guittard-Verlander-Voegtle Scholarship.

The Guittard Book Award was established in 2013 by Dr. Francis G. Guittard’s descendants to honor his legacy, to recognize and celebrate the high quality of published scholarship in the field of history produced by Baylor faculty and graduates of the Department of History, and to acknowledge the ongoing support of the Guittard family to the department. Dr. Francis G. Guittard taught at Baylor University from 1902 until his death in 1950. He helped organize the Department of History in 1910 and served as its chair for about 40 years.

Books eligible for the 2017 Guittard Book Award must have a publishing date between Jan. 1, 2017 and Dec. 31, 2017 and be authored by a current or emeritus Baylor History faculty member or by a graduate holding a degree in History from Baylor University.
