Image Picker for Section 0

​​The Raymond A. Callahan Prize is presented to honor a graduating MALS student who, in the opinion of the program faculty, best exemplifies the personal and academic attributes inspired by Callahan and that the program seeks to instill in its students. It especially recognizes the excellence of the recipient's thesis or final project.

​Raymond Callahan

​Callahan, now professor emeritus of history, taught at UD for 38 years and served as the first director of the MALS program and as associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. He held the John F. Morrison Chair of Military History at the U.S. Army's Command and General Staff College and is a fellow of the Royal Historical Society.

2016 Prize Winners, Patti Cleary and Ken Adams

The 2016 winners of the Callahan Prize were Ken Adams (first prize) and Patti Cleary.

First prize winner Adams’ thesis, “God, Mythology, Nationalism and Romanian Identity: The Post-Communist Transition to Democracy,” explores the connections between Romanian national and ethnic identity and religious tradition in Romania. He made numerous trips to Romania to conduct his research.

Cleary’s project, “I Remember Monika,” is a biographical study of Monika Kehoe, an educator and writer whose work examined aging and sexuality and who lived an unconventional life in the vanguard of homosexuality’s evolution to acceptance.
