The John R. Commons Award

Article excerpt

Omicron Delta Epsilon was established in 1963 as a result of a merger of two honor societies: Omicron Delta Gamma (also known as The Order of Artus), founded in 1915 by Professor John R. Commons at the University of Wisconsin and Professor Frank W. Taussig at Harvard University; and Omicron Chi Epsilon, founded in 1956 by Professor Alan A. Brown when he was a student at the City College of New York. The John R. Commons Award, established in memory of Professor Commons is awarded biennially to an outstanding economist in recognition of academic achievements and for service both to the economics profession and to Omicron Delta Epsilon.
