Thomas E. Daniels Scholarship

Students are invited to apply for the annual Thomas E. Daniels Memorial Scholarship.  The deadline for applications is March 30, 2009.  Applications may be found online.

Professor Thomas E. Daniels taught in the Languages and Literatures Program at UWGB from 1968 until his untimely death in 1980.    Having earned a Ph. D. in American Studies from Washington State University, he was very well-suited to be one of the founding members of an interdisciplinary program and university.  Professor Daniels’ research focused on American literature in the 1920s and 1930s, in particular on the work of Thomas Wolfe, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Ernest Hemingway, but his courses explored the interconnections between literature and history, sociology, economics, and philosophy.  In addition, he emphasized the importance of World Literature, noting that American culture does not exist in a vacuum.  A charismatic individual, Thomas Daniels helped define the character of the Humanities at UWGB.
