They are: "An Affair to Remember," which recounts the controversy and long-lasting impact of the firing of a Socialist-leaning Wharton School professor named Scott Nearing C'06 G'09 in 1915, won a Gold Medal. "Speech!" on linguist Noam Chomsky C'48 G'51 Gr'55 Hon'84 won a Silver Medal.

Those articles and three others ("Dinosaurs Lost and Found," by John Prendergast C'80; and "The Moral Classroom" and "The Particle Sleuths," by Susan Frith) earned the Gazette a Silver Medal for Periodical Staff Writing.

Finally, the Gazette won a Gold Medal for Visual Design in Print for the illustration accompanying the story, "Man of Letters."
