Richard Danzig ’65 is first recipient of Reed's Eliot Award

National security expert Richard Danzig ’65 is the first recipient of the Thomas Lamb Eliot Award for Lifetime Achievement by a Reed College Graduate. The award recognizes a Reed alumnus or alumna for mastering a field of knowledge and reaching the pinnacle of his or her profession. Danzig's extraordinary contributions to his field and his deep commitment to public service exemplify the spirit of intellectual rigor, independence, and integrity for which Thomas Lamb Eliot was known.

Danziq returned to campus in early November as part of the Public Policy Lecture Series for his talk, National Insecurity, which challenged the premises underlying America's policies on national security.
