A Roster of Penn's John Simon Guggenhiem Fellows Over the Years

Last fall the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation set out to gather together all of Fellows from the Delaware Valley, for a reception hosted by President Judith Rodin in Eisenlohr Hall. For Guggenheim Foundation President Joel Conarroe, it was also a homecoming of sorts: he was a professor of English who served as Ombudsman and later as Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences at Penn. Almanac asked for the complete list, and found that there is no definitive list (see end note) but that at least those below have won one or more Guggenheim Fellowships over the years.

End Notes

In a sense this two-page list is a rough draft.

It is based on a file furnished by the Guggenheim Foundation after a search of its full data base, which basically indicated recipients by institution-at-the-time-of-award but was partially updated to reflect, for example, that the host for the reception, Dr. Rodin, had arrived at Penn with a Guggenheim Fellowship in her c.v. Many others who were Guggenheim Fellows before joining Penn will probably need to be found by word of mouth as well. Some on this list have left Penn since receiving the award, and at least two, Dr. Asch and Dr. Palmer, have died since the list was received.

Almanac is interested in additions and changes, and will share them with the University Archives, where efforts are under way to create a comprehensive on-line roster of major honors to Penn faculty, including the Guggenheim, Fulbright, MacArthur and other national and international awards.
