Ashbrook Theses

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!

Thanks for posting these, Peter. The ones I have read in recent years are remarkable.

Congratulations to all the Ashbrooks. No big surprise there that George and Ryan received the prize.
