Pyne Prize nominations

I write to solicit nominations for the Pyne Prize, the highest general distinction the University confers upon an undergraduate, which will be awarded on Alumni Day, Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014.


In thinking about nominations, I would ask that you consider the following description:

Moses Taylor Pyne Honor Prize. A prize awarded annually to the senior who has manifested in outstanding fashion the following qualifications: excellence in scholarship, character and effective support of the best interests of Princeton University. Founded in 1921 in remembrance of the life and character of M. Taylor Pyne, Class of 1877, trustee of Princeton 1884-1921, by his cousin, Mrs. May Taylor Moulton Hanrahan, the prize is the highest general distinction the University confers upon an undergraduate. The prize consists of the income from this fund up to the prevailing comprehensive fee for one academic year.

The prizewinner will be selected by the president of the University, the dean of the college, the dean of undergraduate students and the secretary of the University. We are eager to receive nominations from members of the University community. Please direct such names and, preferably, letters of nomination to my attention at 313 West College by Friday, Jan. 3, 2014.

Kathleen Deignan

Dean of Undergraduate Students
