The seniors graduated Saturday. Although all the theses of all the graduates were fine, we chose the top three Ashbrook Statesmanship Theses
for the Parton prize. In no particular order: George Alecusan, "The Political Philosophy of John C. Calhoun: An Argument Worth Refuting"; Ryan Brown, "The British Empire in India"; Timothy Haglund, "'Just as the Corybantes Hear the Flutes:' A Reading of Plato's Crito". Congratulations to these worthy recipients of the Charles E. Parton Award!
