Decision about Name of Butts-Whiting Award

Posted by Mike Coleman on Sep 7, 2018 11:05 am

Today a communication was sent to members announcing the Board of Trustees’ decision to retain the name of the Butts-Whiting Award. This was in response to information about Porter Butts' connections to a student organization named the Ku Klux Klan while an undergraduate at the University of Wisconsin in the early 1920s. More information about this decision can be found here, and the board will also be holding some online meetings as opportunities for discussion. Additionally, this forum can be a space to process the outcome.
