Flaningam Award

Professor Miletus Lafayette Flaningam taught history at Purdue for more than thirty-three years, and he had a special interest in the graduate program from its inception. After his untimely death in 1979, his colleagues, friends, and students established a memorial fund in his name to reward excellence in graduate student achievement. The award of $500 is presented during the spring semester to the author of the best paper submitted. The name of the winner is inscribed on a permanent plaque displayed in University Hall. The individual is also honored at the department’s spring banquet by receiving a certificate. Previous recipients of the Flaningam Award are not eligible.
