ENDS LONG CAREER ON HIGH NOTE:
Prof. Bredvold Receives Russel Lecturer Award
--- - --- - ----- -
By DIANE LABAKAS
Prof. Louis I. Bredvold, of the
English department, could not be
ending his career on a higher
scale than being selected as this
year's Henry Russel Lecturer.-
After 35 years of teaching at
the University, the University Re-
search Club gave the award to
Prof. Bredvold before his retire-
ment next year. The Russel lec-
ture is the highest honor the Uni-
versity pays its faculty members
for high academic and scientific
Prof. Bredvold did not know of
the award until it was announced
by the Research Club. "It is such
a high honor that I am still
dazed," he said. He mentioned in
his quiet manner, "The best thing
a professor can do when he learns
he has won the award is to ac-
cept it humbly without citing his
merits for receiving it."
Recommendation of the annual
lecturer is made to the Univer-
sity Regents by the nine-man Re-
search Club Council, in consulta-
tion with former lecturers.
"The Research Club recom-
mended Prof. Bredvold because of
his high standing as a scholar
and "his excellent works on John
Dryden," said retired Professor Ed-
ward H. Kraus of the minerology
department. An active member of
the Research Club, Prof. Kraus
received, the Russel Lecturer
award in 1944.
Prof. Bredvold has contributed
75 reviews an darticles in the field
of English literature to scholarly
publications since 1912.
"It is not the number of articles
that is most important but wheth-
er people read them that will give
prominence to an author," Prof.
An authority on the works of
Dryden, Prof. Bredvold combined
his articles into a book, "The In-
tellectual Milieu of John Dryden,"
in 1934. The book accepts Dry-
den's skeptical temperament as
the basic explanation of the de-
velopment of his ideas.
The American Review magazine
commented, "There are few books
for which students of English lit-
erature should feel more grateful."
"My work on Dryden just grew,"
Prof. Bredvold said. "I wrote my
doctoral dissertation on Dryden
and decided to work on it further.
I kept working until it grew into
a book," he explained.
First in Department
Prof. Bredvold is the first mem-
ber of the English Department to
receive the Russel Lecture honor.
Most of the 32 award winners have
been from tle Medical School.

several of the University boards

After being promoted to full
professor in 1930, Prof. Bredvold
