The University of California at Berkeley Emeriti Associations (UCBEA) sends congratulations to the 2020-21 Awardees of the Edward A. Dickson Emeriti Professorship: Robert G. Bergman, Chemistry and Hugh Richmond, English.
Edward A. Dickson served as a Regent of the University of California from 1913 to 1946, the longest tenure of any Regent. In 1955, Mr. Dickson presented the University with a gift endowment which enables each campus to make an annual $10,000 award recognizing teaching, research, or public service by one or more emeritus professors, or a salary stipend for emeriti professors on recall. The highest priority is for support of activities that benefit the campus and for which funding is not available from other sources.
