Seven faculty members
net Guggenheim awards
By STACEY SHONK
The Simon Guggenheim Memorial
Foundation has awarded seven Univer-
sity faculty members research
fellowships averaging $20,000 in its 61st
annual competition. One professor has
rescinded the offer after receiving
another fellowship, however.
The fellowships - totalling more
than $5 million - are designed to
release faculty members from their
teaching responsibilities for one year in
order to give them more time for their
AMONG THE 270 scholars, scientists,
and artists chosen from over 3,500 ap-
plicants are University faculty mem-
bers William Alexander, professor of
English; Daniel Fisher, associate
professor of geological sciences and
associate curator of the Museum of
Paleontology; and Peter Grant,
professor of biology.
Donald Regan, a professor of law and
philosophy was chosenalso, as was
Margaret Cool Root, associate
professor of classical and Near Eastern
art and archaeology and associate
curator of the Kelsey Museum of Ar-
chaeology, and Thomas Toon, associate
professor of English.
The awards are granted "on the basis
of demonstrated accomplishment in the
past and strong promise of the future,"
according to a spokesperson from the
"AMONG research awards, the
Guggenheim fellowship is one of
themost distinguished and
prestigious," said Jack Meiland,
associate dean of LSA. "I think it
reflects well on the University that we
received so many.".
Of 99 competing institutions, the
University ranked seventh in the num-
ber of faculty members awarded
Guggenheim fellowships. The Univer-
sity of California at Berkeley led the
pack with 12 awards. Yale and Harvard
Universities followed with 10 and nine,
respectively. The University of
Chicago, Columbia University, and
Cornell University tied with eight

Alexander said the Guggenheim
award will allow him "to study the use
of theatre, film, video, and teaching in a
way that empowers audiences and
students . . . and disrupts the status
go." He will begin his research in
January, after he returns from a
semester sabbatical in Lima, Peru.
Fisher said his fellowship will fund an
investigation of the extinction of
mastodons in the Great Lakes Region
some 10,000 years ago. Grant on the
other hand, said he will incorporate 10
of field work into a book about the
evolution of Darwin's finches in the
Galapagos Islands now that he can take
time off under Guggenheim sponsor-
