The 2002 Llewellyn John and Harriet Manchester Quantrell Award for Excellence in Undergraduate TeachingAlthough from 1938 to 1952 his name was a mystery to the University community, today the name Quantrell is synonymous with excellence in undergraduate teaching. Ernest Quantrell, who made his anonymous donation more than six decades ago, created an endowment that was unique in American higher education. He created a monetary award that would be presented annually to faculty members in recognition of their excellence in teaching undergraduate students. His anonymity prevailed for 14 years, but in 1952, Quantrell, a University Trustee, added to his gift and consented to be acknowledged as the donor. At that time he also named the award for his parents. The Llewellyn John and Harriet Manchester Quantrell Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching is the nations oldest prize given for undergraduate teaching.
