Winks honored by Oxford, National Parks

Robin W. Winks, chair of the department of history and the Randolph W. Townsend Jr. Professor of History, has recently been honored as both a historian and an educator.

He has been invited to be the Vyvyan Harmsworth Visiting Professor of American History at Oxford University in 1999-2000. Winks will deliver a series of lectures on American environmental history and an inaugural lecture titled "Historians and Their Autobiographies." Winks was at Oxford in 1992-93, when he lectured on the history of the British empire as the George Eastman Professor. He will be the first scholar to have held both the Eastman and Harmsworth professorships; John Lewis Gaddis, the Robert A. Lovett Professor of Military & Naval History and a previous Harmsworth Professor at Oxford, will soon become the second scholar to have that distinction when he takes up the Eastman chair in 2000-2001.

Winks also recently received the first National Parks Association gold medal for contributions to public education on behalf of the nation's national parks. This annual honor will be known henceforth as the Robin W. Winks Award.
